Request for Call/Indication of Offer: Aug 2, 2023
Offer of Rep: Aug 3, 2023
ACCEPTED OFFER: Aug 18, 2023

Updated Note: Since then, I've already had a 3-hour meeting with Sera and next one is scheduled as she edits and I work on a synopsis. She is super organized (which helps me) and an avid reader who helps guide me in the right directions with recommendations.

She also is VERY game to help me with a psychological thriller that sorta straddles the mystery line! I'm VERY grateful.

Original Note: She seems absolutely LOVELY and I *REALLY* enjoyed speaking with her, plus it was amazing to have an agent read a full in one day and message me throughout the read with thoughtful questions. I'm going to have some difficult decisions to make coming up since I wasn't expecting this, let alone more than one offer!

Hi Sera,
I participated in the SCBWI-OR Perfect Pitch and you were interested in my picture book pitch. I’d like to send my query, manuscript and link to illustrations for “Sound of a Seahorse.” Where can I send them?
Sincerely, Raelene Van Horn

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.
