EQ 6/10 - upmarket contemporary (99k words) - Amy liked my DVPit pitch in April 2020, but I hesitated to send based on agency concerns. Once she moved to JDL, I asked her via Twitter if she was still interested in my MS, and sent along after she confirmed.
FR 6/15 - full MS sent 6/16

EQ 6/24
E-Rejection 6/28
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. In your search for the perfect agent, you may want to check out Writer’s Digest Guide to Literary Agents blog: http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/guide-to-literary-agents, I have found it to be an excellent resource for finding new agents that are looking to build their lists.

I also encourage writers to gather beta readers and critique partners to help hone their craft; CP's suggestions can be invaluable.

Lastly, 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

Originally queried at her old agency on 4/28, received a Full Request same day, submitted same day.
Re-querying at new agency (yay!) 6/10--couldn't attach the full in Query Manager, so explained the situation in my letter.
