@Dryadwriter Ugh! I'm glad this one was a CNR for me. I can't abide rudeness, especially in a professional setting. The more I'm in this whole business, the more I'm baffled by agencies that treat authors like manure. Self-publishing is eroding their importance; you'd think they'd work harder to be kind to authors who seek representation.

Rudest team ever. My query was professionally polished and her assistant was just rude and told me I needed to read Query Shark before I queried them again. Never mind that the same exact query has gotten me eight requests this year. Ugh. I hate rude people.

Based on what Ms. Delbourgo says below, I doubt that I would benefit much from her editorial input. Why is what she feels "unfortunate" for her, me, or the reading public?

Thank you for contacting me. Unfortunately, I don't feel I am the right agent for this material.
Good luck to you.
