DVpit email query: 10/27/21
Full request: 11/02/21
Kind rejection: 01/11/22

She's passing because she's only taking on very limited clients, and said I could query someone else at the agency if they seem like a better fit.

Reject 9/20/21 very nice but seems like form rejection "didn't connect with the writing as much as I'd hoped."

I originally queried Suzie Townsend, who passed Stephanie my submission after my offer of rep nudge.
Full Request: 04/18, sent same day
OFFER OF REP!: 04/20

I went with another agent (I had five offers of rep), but I would totally recommend Stephanie! She's really passionate and is building her list. She has a background as a book publicist, and she took the initiative after our call to put me in touch with New Leaf's in-house foreign rights department, which I really appreciated.
