"I truly appreciate you sharing your work [title] with me. I'm sorry to say that the project isn't the best match for me right now. I understand the querying process is arduous, so please know that just because I don't plan to pursue right now, that doesn't have a bearing on your talent as a writer or the project as a whole. Other agents will most likely feel differently.

As you continue your querying process, Emerald City Literary Agency and I would like to share some resources:

[] (a group blog featuring agents, editors, sales reps, and authors)

[] (A database of agents, made by the same people who created Query Manager!)

[] (A discussion board, with a fantastic YA section as well as a "background check" section for agents, and a place to post your query for critique. You must have a thick skin, but it's an excellent resource!)

[] (A curated list of resources created by a talented, New York Times bestselling YA author!)

[] (It's not often updated, but I find the archives so helpful for comments on queries to help guide writers.)

Best of luck,

Rejection to Full received on 7/13/2021 (with regrets she said) it was very kind, very helpful, and not at all formal. She gave me specific advice for moving forward and I'm excited to implement it in my revisions.

Echoing what @vickipet said! I originally queried Linda Epstein, who requested the full and passed my MS to Caitlin. She and Linda offered co-representation.

I went with another agent (I had five offers of rep), but I would totally recommend querying Caitlin! She's whip smart, passionate about stories, and is building her list. She is very editorial and has a sharp eye for craft.

11/9/20 Query to Mandy Hubbard (MG Contemporary)
2/15/21 Full request (from Mandy)
4/7/21 Notification from Caitlin White that my manuscript was passed to her, phone call set up
4/13/21 Offer of Representation from Caitlin!
4/23/21 Offer Accepted!!
I ended up with multiple offers, but I chose Caitlin due to her professionalism, excellent story sense, and enthusiasm. Yes, she's new to agenting, but she has excellent editorial skills and the full support of the agency behind her. Linda Epstein will be co-repping.
Don't hesitate to query her. She's amazing!
