I got a variant of the email others got:

"
I can't stop thinking about your work!

Did you ever find your agent? Are they editorial-minded? Or maybe you're still looking or going the self pubbed route? No matter the situation, I want to help! Your story has stuck out in my mind and, as I quit agenting to offer editorial services, I wondered about you ... I am doing freelance editing, calling my service FERAL GIRL BOOKS--solely for female/female-identifying/genderqueer writers.

I would love the chance to work with you (or writers/stories like yours--so please spread the word!)--hopefully, I can/will!!!

Hope you're well!

Best,
Amy Tipton
Feral Girl Books
"

Btw, she'd requested my full and supposedly loved it, but rejected me because i'm white and my book is set in Japan. Not sure how her editing would fix that little problem :-/

Beware! She's left agenting and is trying to sell her literary services to the people who queried her. Her strategy is to send a phony-baloney form letter pretending to have a personal interest in each writer. People like this make me sick. She's playing on the insecurities of people who are desperate to get positive feedback from an agent. Here's the letter:

I keep thinking about you/your work and I am sad we never got to work together--I'm quitting agenting to offer editorial services--I am doing freelance editing, calling my service FERAL GIRL BOOKS--solely for female/female-identifying/genderqueer writers.... I keep wondering about you...Did you ever find your agent? Are they editorial-minded? Or maybe you're sill looking or going the self pubbed route? No matter the situation, I want to help! Your story has stuck out in my mind and I would love the chance to work with you (or writers/stories like yours--so please spread the word!)--hopefully, I can/will!!! Hope you're well!

It looks like she's leaving agenting. See personalized form below:

Thank you for your query, which I read with interest. Unfortunately, I
am not the right agent for your work. Do not despair as another agent
might feel quite differently.

Thank you for considering me. I wish you the best with your writing.

Best,
Amy Tipton

*This was a difficult decision--I'm sorry not to read. (This sounds amazing--THIS IS EXACTLY THE TYPE OF BOOK I'D READ--but I'm leaving agenting and not taking on new clients, so sorry! But after Labor Day, I am offering editorial services--spread the word!--And if you, yourself, are interested, even better!--check out my website: amy-tipton.com--it needs serious tweaking but the info is there!)

She is listed here as interested in Sci-Fi but her own guidelines specifically say she doesn't represent that genre. Perhaps her here should be updated

*This was a difficult decision--I'm sorry not to read.

It seems like she has an incredibly full list of clients right now, so the manuscript would have to be particularly exceptional. Either way, prompt, respectful, kind.
