All correspondence with "MMQ": brief and anonymous but polite. A unique submission experience, to be sure - ran out of rounds on my "query status" record!

04/17/17: Seemingly form rejection, yet polite and kind.
I really appreciate the quick response. I must say my hopes were up––WAY up––when I saw her email. On the agency site, she says she only responds if interested. So, I immediately thought, "A request from Maria Massie!" Alas, no. A kind rejection is so much better than a no-response, though.

Hmm. I didn't see it on their website (which won't even come up right now), but I got a rejection saying "Unfortunately, we do not represent science fiction or fantasy." So, if that helps anybody...
