Amy is incredible. I had multiple offers, but I kept coming back to hers. We gelled, she was professional, and had a clear plan with the backing of a great agency. I highly recommend querying her. To the future!

Her form rejection is very kind, but still none the less a copy and paste rejection.
Thank you so much for submitting sample pages of THORN to me. Even though I found many great qualities in your work, I must decline it at this time. I'm sorry to not have better news to share. The publishing industry is very subjective, so what may not work for me could be just what another agent is looking for.

I encourage you to continue your pursuit of publication. Keep honing your skills, learning about the industry, and always embrace a growth mindset. I'm rooting for you!

All my best,
Amy
