Pitched at Michigan Writers Workshop on 4th Feb 2022
Middle Grade mystery - 52,000 words
Requested first 3 chapters sent 5th Feb
Rejection 27th April
Amy gave some personalized feedback based on the opening chapters, and I recently heard something not dissimilar from another agent so will be reworking the start.
Amy was both very nice when I spoke to her as part of pitch, and her rejection was very supportive and encouraging. I would recommend querying (although she is about to close her list for a while as of 1st May according to Twitter)

FQ: 2.28.22
Received questions about manuscript (I am previously agented) on 3.17.22 which I answered same day
PR of manuscript I queried and a differ MG manuscript I mentioned that I had completed on 3.25.22
Was rejected on both manuscripts 4.4.22 with two very personal responses and suggestions for both stories.

I am absolutely heart broken but I will query again once I'm done editing this next manuscript.

Thank you so much for submitting sample pages of >> Title << to me. Even though I found many great qualities in your work, I wasn't drawn in as deeply as I hoped to be, so 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. I wish you the very best of luck!

Sincerely,
Amy Giuffrida
