Ann Leslie was wonderful on the phone and I have no doubt she would have been a great agent. I was fortunate enough to be able to have a choice and another agent was simply a better fit. Thank you for your kind words, everyone, and I wish you all the best on your querying journey!

*I did not query; she found me through other channels

1/14 - received an email from her saying Sharon Pelletier had forwarded her my query letter because she's actively looking for historical romance and she requested a short synopsis and the full (sent on 1/15)

3/16 - rejection (the romance itself did not deliver as much of a fantasy as romance readers are seeking)

Did anyone get a confirmation email after sending a full? She's had mine a little longer than some here. I'm not sure if that is a good sign, or maybe she didn't recieve my full..?

@Babs14 I sent mine on Jan 15th and haven't heard back either. But looking through some of the older comments, some people heard back closer to the 3 month mark so I'm still hopeful.

She's fast and courteous, as others have said. She liked my premise but didn't find the plotting as compelling as she hoped.
