I'd love to query her but to say they have to be "exclusive" feels alienating. Why have authors put their careers on hold for a very slim "Maybe"?

Only accepts exclusive queries

Her website states she only accepts 'exlusive queries'. Does this mean I can't send other queries out until she makes a decision? I've never come across this request before!

She requested four weeks to review. On March 2nd, she said she had started the book and because of travel would like more time for review. On March 7th, she had finished it and requested a phone call. On March 8th, she offered me representation.

She was my first pick. She gave notes for my manuscript (which were incredible) and I will be giving her my next draft soon and then we will hopefully soon go on submission. The whole Pippin team (I have now met quite a few people repped by them) are truly devoted to their clients.
