Very quick and helpful response.
Made my first attempt at querying a pleasant experience, even though it was a rejection.

'While I found the premise intriguing and the opening pages strong, the YA fantasy market is a really difficult one right now and I'm not confident I could position this one the way I'd need to to break it out'

She sent this helpful comment: "Unfortunately, I'm afraid I must pass on this project; while I really liked elements of the premise and the opening pages, the YA fantasy market is extremely challenging right now, and I'm not confident I could place a story with a fey element at this time."

Sent a kind note that she enjoyed my pages and my pitch but that it was too similar to a concept she's already representing.

Form Query through Query Manager: 7/2/2021
Form Rejection: 7/13/2021 nice and quick as others have reported
Her Form Rejection (same as others below): Unfortunately, I'm afraid I must pass on this project; I wasn’t as pulled in by the opening pages as I'd hoped. The publishing industry is subjective, and what doesn't work for me might be just what another agent is looking for. I wish you the best of luck in your writing as you work toward publication.

Form rejection :( - 7/13/21
Upmarket with spec twist, 82k

Nervous about this one because two of her MSWL tweets seemed to fit well with my MS. Fingers crossed. I guess you never know what other elements might deter an agent! :)

I had some negative experiences with this agency, but that was a number of years ago and I want to give them the benefit of the doubt. Any comments on whether this is a good agency to work with today?
