Julia is now my agent! She's absolutely wonderful, and so kind, and SO smart, and we're hard at work at revisions already. She's also read my other manuscript (a middle grade novel), and seems excited for us to work on that next.

My MS is a short story collection (and quite hybrid in genre; it has elements of literary fiction, the southern gothic, fairy tales, surrealism, and LGBTQ fiction).

EQ: 7/17
PR: 7/18, she's fast! Requested the first 50 pages, sent same day. She confirmed receipt 7/19.
ER: 7/20 Form rejection, not for her (she misspelled the title of my book lol)

I only just now found out that Julia is an assistant, and she's an assistant to Sarah Burnes, who rejected my manuscript when I first queried it last year. If I had known she was Sarah's assistant, I wouldn't have bothered. That definitely explains why she rejected it so quickly.
