Though I queried Heather, my submission was passed on to Travis, who requested the full the next day. I already have a publication offer from a small press and I am looking for an agent to broker the deal. Update 2/20/18: I offically signed with Travis Pennington!

Thank you so much for allowing The Knight Agency to consider your material. Unfortunately, after carefully reviewing your query, we’ve determined that this particular project isn’t the right fit for us at this time. As I’m sure you know, the publishing industry changes swiftly now, as do readers’ tastes and trends. As a result, our own agents’ needs shift and change, as well; therefore, we would like to encourage you to consider querying us with future projects as you may deem appropriate.

Again, thank you very much for allowing us this chance to consider your material, and we wish you all the best in your publishing endeavors.

Heather is currently accepting queries for Romance, Science Fiction/Fantasy, high-concept Urban Fantasy, Women’s Fiction, Upmarket Fiction, Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Young Adult, and Middle Grade. She is particularly passionate about stories with strong female protagonists. Edgy heroes and heroines in seemingly impossible situations are sure to get her attention, as are delectable enemies-to-lovers romances.

If you have a hotmail email address, their website states: "To ensure delivery we suggest that you do not use Hotmail." However, I took the chance anyway and made sure to put "QUERY" as the first word in the subject line. Since I received a form rejection, my email was received.

FR: 11/8 from Kristy Hunter stating that Deidre Knight would love to see the full. I guess they share the queries. Either way, I'm excited...and also confused...but mostly excited!!!

So, you guys, I emailed and asked if my query even made it to Heather's eyes, since, you know, they have different genre preferences, and this was the reply: Dear [my name],As the submissions coordinator, I simply respond on the agent’s behalf and do not make judgements based on my personal list.

Best wishes,
This actually made me laugh. You're telling me that she reads queries and instead of pushing a button for a form rejection, she takes the time to stop everything and tell an assistant to send a form rejection? Lol. Hope this helps someone else.

Just like everyone else, I got a form from Kristy Hunter. I get that agents are busy and need readers to vet for them or whatever, but shouldn't those readers have the same interest in books? My book is YA fantasy, which was on Heather's list, but Kristy (apparently) doesn't like that genre. Of course she rejected me! What a waste of time.
