ER 9/20 from Patricia Nelson - strong writing, enjoyed it, but don't "have a clear vision for how to help it break out in either the crowded current women's fiction or contemporary romance markets"

Form letter—it even said to find an agent who would “champion” my work. I laughed out loud at the irony.

EQ: 7/30/17 (query letter + first 25 pgs following request at pitch session, HNS Conference June 2017)

ER: 9/13/17 Kevan feels the story lacks a character/era that will appeal to major publishers, I.e. Would be a hard sell. Disappointing but not discouraging: she stated "your writing is very strong" so it wasn't all bad.
