Not a fit for her
from EllieTerry

@NancyA, Since it specifically states, "in the cover letter" I assumed that meant to include the standard 1-2 paragraph description of the novel within the query letter itself.

The website says queries for novels should include a synopsis in the cover letter. Does anyone know if that means a standard 1-2 paragraph description, or an actual synopsis that covers the entire plot? Thanks!

" the end I did not feel that extra passion for the project." I appreciate her taking the time to reference the title, premise & main character. I suspect it's form, but it's kind of her to personalize it. Disappointing, because I imagine she is lovely to work with.

Followed-Up 6/1/21 to check in and to say I had an mg novel ready for submission and would like to send her that if she was interested. So glad I did!
Amy got right back to me and said that although the pb didn't feel ready, she'd be happy to consider the novel. I sent the first 50 pages that day.
7/27 - I followed up again and Amy got right back again requesting the full
A few emails later (including extensive feedback and some suggestions on revision)...
8/24/21 OFFER OF REP!

I know you're supposed to give other agents a chance to decline, but I didn't bother. After all of our emailing and Amy's feedback, I knew it was the perfect fit and on 9/1 I let the remaining agents who had my manuscript know that I'd accepted her offer.


Don't give up and don't be afraid to follow-up (once, and respectfully, of course)! My first submission got buried in Amy's inbox and if I hadn't reached out, it would have ended there!
