Online form query: 01/17/20
Rejection: 02/02/20 - kind rejection saying she enjoyed the concept, but pages didn't pull her in. I would recommend querying this agent. She seems like a very nice person!

PB submit on 1/19/2021
reject on 1/23/2012
very kind rejection complimenting writing but "Unfortunately, my client list is PB heavy at the moment, so I am forced to be highly selective in what I take on."

YA Contemporary Fantasy

Kelly was so nice. We had a great conversation about my book, general revisions she would suggest, and even the current status of the publishing industry (and how the pandemic has changed things). I'm letting other agents have time to read and indicate interest but Kelly seems a really great agent to work with! My story hit several notes on her MSWL so it seems like a really good fit with her tastes.

PB. Kind, encouraging rejection referring specifically to my MS. She's not looking to take on more picture book writers.
