9/7: #pitmad request
11/24: EQ with first 50pg with #pitmad in the subject line as per website instructions
CNR: 1/12/18 I guess when she requests something on #pitmad, it isn't an invitation. She wants it right then.

Got an auto-response saying she's closed to unsolicited submissions. Guess we'll see if I get a response.

EQ: 3/25 (she requested a partial at a conference)
ER: 5/2
It was a personalized rejection from her intern saying she liked my concept but my voice sounded too old fashion for Laurie. I was disappointed not to hear back from Laurie herself, seeing as I did meet her at a conference, but it was very polite and I appreciated the personalization.

The rejection I received today made it very clear she is only looking for HARD science fiction.

No, not a typo. It was rejected with a personalized note in less than a day. She hated the book's opening, but loved the sarcasm and voice. Given the quickness, I think she probably wants mainstream science fiction, not something that resembles literary fiction.

This one is a bit sad for me - Laurie seems like a great agent. I don't really want to close this one out, but 5 months is probably long enough. It will be a pleasant surprise if I hear from her at this point! Good luck everyone else. :)

Is anyone else finding it impossible to load this agency's website? It always just whitescreens for me. I use Safari and have a mac.
