I carefully reviewed each agent before I queried. I decided on querying Jen because she's aggressively seeking women's fiction and I got a full request the same day. So I am very excited that I found this thread! 

 

Also, I have to agree that I really feel that this is going to be a powerhouse of an agency, and I am so excited that I queried. (I'm on a querying break right now to see where the two partials I have out do, but I decided to break my own rule and query Jen, and I'm glad I did!)

VPierce, let us know how it goes. I'm interested in querying Jen for the same reason, but I'm waiting to get feedback on a partial.

So Pam rejected my partial, but at the other agency. (This was when she was in transition, I think). I will have to check and see if I can query the others. ???

Is anyone else getting a bounceback email when querying Jen Karsbaek?

Following this topic with interest - Jen Karsbaek's name is on my list of agents to query.

I know from Twitter that Pam is doing more personalized rejections. I want to query her, although she has already rejected me before the big move (back in January), not out of any expectation of a request but for the sheer curiosity of what she would say in the personalized rejection. Sadly, chances I'll get the rejection from Pam is 50/50 because she has an assistant who still uses the form :humph:

Just a head's up - I queried Pam with "Dear Pam" and not a problem. :)
