Super fast response, which I appreciate--she didn't connect with the voice.

Full Request: 6/4/21
R&R request: 6/8/21 - Very speedy reply! She was kind, complimentary, and gave plenty of feedback regarding the changes she'd like to see implemented and why.
Rejection: 2/2/22 - I resubmitted my revised MS on 12/7/21, so she, again, was very fast getting back to me, which I appreciate. In the end, she said, very kindly and with some compliments to ease the sting, that because she didn't feel that deep, gut-level connection to my MS that she would not be the best agent for it. And she's not wrong.

Definitely an agent worth querying!

Rejection: 1/12/22
Upmarket fiction, 92K

The form letter was personalized, but not helpful because her feedback was based on a mistaken assumption. She stated she "did not connect with (a certain element) on a heart and gut level"...but that element is not in the book.
