Does anyone know the best way to get in contact with this agent? I submitted my query to her before she closed to new queries and I haven't heard anything since.

Query: 5/5/22
Nudged on 6/22 with offer of rep
Rejection on 6/23:

“Dear Natalie,

Thank you so much for thinking of me for your project and letting me know about your offer of representation. After digging in, I'm afraid I wasn't as taken by the storytelling as I'd hoped and so I will have to pass. Wishing you all the best with your new publishing partner!

Best,
Chelsey Emmelhainz”

Appreciate the fast response!

Polite decline

Thank you so much for thinking of me for your project, PARTY & PLAY: METH, #METOO AND POLITICS AS USUAL. After digging in, I'm afraid I'm not as excited by the premise as I would need to be in order to pursue representation, and so I will have to pass. I wish you the best of luck in your search for the right partner for your work

Semi-personalized rejection: 5/21/22
“While your premise caught my eye, I'm afraid the plotting felt a bit underwhelming, lacking the layered conflicts I'm looking for in this genre. For these reasons, I'll have to pass but I wish you the best of luck finding the right representative for your work.”

After one month a polite “No.”

Thank you so much for sharing THE SENTINEL: A MYSTERY with me. After taking a look, I feel your premise is too similar to another recent project of mine. I'm sorry to pass here, but wish you the best of luck finding the right representative for your work.

Thank you so much for thinking of me for your project, THE AWAKENING. However, as fantasy, I'm afraid it's outside of the genres I'm looking for right now, so I will have to pass. I wish you the best of luck finding the right representative for your work.

Sincerely,
Chelsey Emmelhainz

I guess she doesn't take fantasy, despite the genre list saying she does. Only magical realism.

(Semi?) personalized rejection after ~a month stating she wasn't excited enough by the premise to offer rep.

"After taking a look, I don't feel confident that the hook is strong enough to stand out in such a crowded fiction market. I'm sorry to pass here, but wish you the best of luck finding the right representative for your work."
