@frostedcupcake I just filled out the form for this agency myself, and near the drop-down box where you're supposed to select an agent it said something about how we should only query one agent, because if the agent you query believes your story is a better fit for someone else at the agency, they'll pass it along internally. Hope this is helpful.

@frostedcupcake I think it's OK to query another after one rejects you. Can't remember where I saw this, but that was my conclusion.

I can't tell if Sterling Lord is a "query only one agent" agency. It doesn't say explicitly on their website. Does anyone know?

I feel like something must be done about the way in which online forms butcher my formatting- all the cursive, bold, line breaks... just gone. *insert tears*

@wordgirl251--No, I didn't receive notification that the query went through. In the past, she only notified me when she wanted to make a request.
