@ sheadakota & alohachild: Just a heads up, guys, if you are querying an agent at FinePrint named Rachel, her name is Rachel Coyne, not Cohn or Cohen!

Also, alohachild, regarding how Janet Reid selects queries for Query Shark, she chooses queries based on how well they illustrate a point she is trying to make (e.g., "This is a good example of what to do/not to do," etc.). If she didn't select your query for personal review, you shouldn't read anything critical into it.

Hope this helps!
