Hi all,
This is Susan. Apologies for the confusion. I recently attended a writer's conference and for ease of taking pitch requests, I opened my Query Manager again and didn't use the conference form that QM has.

I have now updated my agent's page to clarify that I am ONLY taking requests from people I met with at the conference. I am not officially open for queries again and I'm sorry to not have an ETA on when I will be. As part of my position, I manage our agency's subsidiary rights so my plate is very full at the moment and I want to be able to give queries my full attention when I can provide it. Thank you all for your interest here and apologies again for the confusion.

5/16/2022: Kind, personalized pass. She had nothing negative to say, only that she didn't fall in love. My book is very cozy and romantic and earnest, so she might be looking for something with more bite. I would highly recommend querying her.

Rejected after I received another offer of rep. But in her rejection she praised my premise and writing and comped my book to one of MY favorite books. Nicest rejection to date.

"Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to review [BOOK] and for your patience as I took the time to review your material.

Unfortunately, I didn't feel that spark of enthusiasm that I need in order to request more here.

For whatever reason, I just didn't connect with this as much as I would have liked to but as you know, this business is very subjective and you may very well find the right reader to connect with this down the line.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn more about you and your work. I wish you best of luck on your writing journey."
