Just had a phone call from the new editor at a literary agency I was in touch with last year. BIG crime agent. She's new in the job and working her way through correspondence she's inherited and wanted to know where I was up to with rewrites and what not. From what I could gather, she'd got me flagged as potential talent, which is rather lovely (as is she). She asked me to send her a synopsis for the new novel, even though I explained it was work in progress and unlikely to be ready for subbing for some months. I wonder - just wonder - if this is connected to the CWA Anthology. This particular agent is a big supporter of the CWA, attends their jollies and so forth. And I'd more or less written this agency off. They're not the ones who were so very enthusiastic and supportive of my writing, although helpful and constructive enough.
