Submitted this manuscript following Ms. Chun's prior interest in a different horror MS during May 22's PitDark. After several kind exchanges related to the PitDark manuscript, Ms. Chun politely declined.

Submitted new manuscript July 31, 2022. Received response that Ms. Chun does not represent stories that feature police protagonists. Was told Ms. Chun would not consider any future queries from me.

Search on the agency site FAILS. She's an "assistant" to an agent, so can't tell what she's looking for w/o knowing which agent.

#APIpit query: 5/5/22
Very enthusiastic full request: 5/5/22, sent same day
Very kind, long, personalized rejection: 5/24/22 "Unfortunately, I’m sorry to say that I didn’t connect enough with the story to believe I’m the right agent for it. [...] I admit that I got lost with the world building once <plot point>, and I had trouble knowing who <MC> was as a person beyond her job and empathy [...]. As someone living in the world we live in, I understood and I would hope that other readers would too; however, from an in-story POV, I wanted to know what made <MC> care when almost no one else does."

LGBT Literary Fiction

Thank you for sending ____. While I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work, unfortunately, I don’t feel I connected enough with the writing to be the right agent for the project. I know this is disappointing news to receive; however, please keep in mind that this business often comes down to personal taste, and another agent may feel differently and devote themselves to championing your work in the way it deserves.

I wish you the best of luck in finding the right representation.

Best regards,

Jane Chun

MS. Chun is an agency assistant. She is not working full-time to take on new clients and it might be premature to have her listed as an agent.
