@jmay, I’ve noticed the same

Alice no longer represents Namina Forna, so I don’t think using Namina’s book as comp in your query is a good way to get her favor. I’ve also been noticing how I query her with books that match her MSWL and are getting attention from other agents—but have similarities with Namina’s books (African setting, African author, school setting) get passed by her. I don’t know but she and Namina probably spilt on poor terms and she’s not interested in stories similar in any form to Namina’s. Just thought to put that observation out there

Alice has been amazing from the very first call! Incredibly professional and very communicative with her clients, and as a SEA person, the fact that she's based in the UK (working with different timezones) and has BIPOC clients from all over the world is very important to me. It's been a dream to sign on with her!
