Ms. Gilbert provided me with some advice on my sample pages before passing on the project and she is spot on. She seems like a very thoughtful agent. She's the second agent to provide a personal note on how to make my work better, which she really did not have to do. I am super appreciative! I encourage others to query her.

Very nice letter "concept isn't pulling me in as much as I had hoped." Letter actually so nice it hurt a little more than the standard rejection. ;)
