Friendly/semi-personalised feedback as below: -

Thanks so much for thinking of me at Stimola Literary Studio. I really enjoyed reading this and meeting the characters in this book - there is a lot of potential here. However, although there was a lot that resonated in your pitch and sample, this is going to be a pass. I can only take on a few new authors a year, and so I must feel with great certainty that we’ll be successful getting your book into the marketplace. Without this confidence, I can’t move forward, but I do think another agent may feel different, so do keep trying! (I don't usually send rejections, but this one was a close call, so I wanted to thank you and wish you well.)

All best,
Alli

@jmay18 . . . quick check on publishers marketplace: she's got 322 deals overall, 8 six figure deals and 7 deals in past 12 months. Definitely a longtime, seasoned agent

A question: I’m considering querying Allison. I’ve seen some writers mention how she’s an agent with lots of experience. But I’ve been researching and am yet to find any groundbreaking book deals or outstanding authors of hers. Not just as a foreign rights agent, but a full-on literary agent. I feel rather that she might be new and building her portfolio instead? If not I would like to know. Thanks!

Thanks so much for thinking of me at Stimola Literary Studio. I’m afraid that although there was that resonated in your pitch and sample and aligned with my interests, this is going to be a pass. I can only take on a few new authors a year, and so I must feel with great certainty that we’ll be successful getting your book into the marketplace. Without this confidence, I can’t move forward, but I do think another agent may feel different, so do keep trying!
