@KristenH Wow, talk about rude. I'm putting them on my DNQ list simply because I don't want to deal with an agency that treats prospective authors like that.

Eq 11/23/16 (Venom)
ER 1/24/17 (Passed-not taking any new clients.)

ER 4/7/17 (Passed from nudge--not taking new clients.) {Kim Lombardini was quite rude in the email. Just because I've queried and requeried Lukas and Philip, doesn't mean she has to be rude about declining my mss, claiming enough's already. I'll try them again next year with DI, if they're open to new clients.)
