It took 56 days to hear back on my initial query, but she gave really wonderful and sweet personalized feedback. I would totally query her again. I think she seems like a wonderful person.

EQ DVpit request
RR. This was the email. Not sure if it's form or not.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to read and consider BOOK TITLE. I deeply appreciate its unique premise, but I’m afraid that I'm going to have to pass up the opportunity to represent it. I just did not connect with the writing on a heart and gut level—the kind of connection and conviction you'd want your agent to have. However, I trust another agent will feel differently.

I appreciate you sharing your work with me. I wish you the very best in finding a good home for it, and I hope you and yours are safe and healthy.

Warmly,
Larissa
