Form query: Jan. 21.
Partial request: Mar. 23 (sent on Mar. 23).
Full request: Jun. 22 (sent on Jun. 22).
Q&A: Jul 27 (sent on Jul 27). (Jennifer asked if my previous agent had submitted the work to editors. I informed Jennifer that it briefly made the rounds a few years ago. I offered to request the sub list from my previous agent. I also mentioned that after I cordially ended the relationship with my agent, I rewrote the book.)
Rejection: Aug. 2.

It appears that no agent will touch a book that's been previously submitted to editors, even if it was rewritten, was year since it has been submitted, and only went to a few editors. I understand -- agents want fresh stories. So, to the trash the manuscript goes. I had multiple agents asking to represent the book the first time I queried the story a few years ago. Oh well -- that's life. Good luck with your projects, everyone.

MG, Contemporary.

"I found your query interesting, I didn't quite feel connected to the characters as I had hoped. Due to this, I won't be asking to read more at this time."

Rejection on 06/24/2021 with nice rejection: "It's a wonderful story idea, but unfortunately, I didn't fall in love with this draft as much as I would need to take on the project. For that reason, I am going to step aside for now, but I truly appreciate the opportunity to consider your work."

Thank you for your patience. I will be in touch in the near future."
