Queried: 2-24-2017 High fantasy/magical realism (94k words).
Replied: 2-24-2017 Received a polite form rejection:
"Thank you very much for your query, which we have read with interest. Unfortunately, the project does not seem right for this agency, and we are sorry that we cannot offer to serve as your literary agent.
We also apologize for the form rejection. The sheer number of queries we receive prevents personalization in order for us to respond in a timely fashion.
We wish you all the best in finding more suitable representation, encourage you to query widely, and thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your work.
Sincerely,

FR sent: 8/12/2016
Update: I accidentally sent the docs as onedrive files so she couldn't open them
FR Resent: 10/29/2016
ER: 1/13/17- Said writing showed promise but story didn't grab her which is what I've been getting for the most part. Time to take a break and go back to the drawing board with this one. Good luck to everyone else.

Rejected without ever being seen. The note back said they had too many submissions. Added to cut list. I only deal with serious agencies.
