Has anyone queried more than one agent at this agency? With success?
I know they frown on this, but I find it hard to believe they share all incoming queries with fellow agents.

Round 1: Submitted: rejected (if I remember her correctly, this was the one who sent vague, pointless feedback, but hey, at least she got back to me).
Round 2: She asked to see it through #DVpit. I thought, well, it hasn't been long enough for her to forget, so evidently she wants to consider it again. With very low expectations, but mild curiosity, I sent query and pages Low expectations met. Rejected via form letter. I don't mind form letter rejections. Beats never hearing back. But this goes out of its way to let you know that you are just another of the THOUSANDS of submissions she gets, anonymous and irrelevant, and not worth a personal response. Sometimes rejections sting. Some offer hope (I've gotten multiple "This is really strong writing, I'm just not the person to represent it" rejections). This one? Meh. *shrug*

A little perplexed by this one. I thought she was a romance agent?

Rom com. Love how quickly she responded and read the MS. She was complimentary about the writing and voice and gave feedback on why she was passing on it. She also requested to look at more of my work if I had any (unfortunately, don't have another completed MS in my back pocket. ;-) As far as rejections go, this was a good one.

In her form letter, there was reference to a pitch I didn't use with her, so I emailed to make sure she hadn't miscommunicated. She was very pleasant, apologizing for the mistake, but still passing.

Email Query 2/15/19 (she liked my #kisspitch Tweet)
26 min after I sent the query she requested the full
2/19/19 email rejection letter with feedback that directly contradicts all the other feedback I've gotten.
(romantic suspense 80K)
Disappointed, she seemed super interested and into the premise.
