When I queried Faye Bender, I had forgotten that she's probably quite preoccupied these days. She was the agent in the middle of a phony memoir debacle, and the dust has yet to settle.
No wonder then that I got the form rejection within a couple of days.
She's only taking on things selectively, and anything that mentions the word "memoir" is not to be part of the selection process.
My manuscript is pure fiction, and I said so up front, but I used historical data to flesh out the story's bones and wasn't I foolish to mention memoirs as a source document.
Sorry. I'll go back to the agent search and find someone with a quieter office.
