Sent query 10/19 and received rejection 10/21, saying that the concept didn't grab her. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm telling a story, not a concept. And one chapter is not enough of a sample size to determine the marketability of a given project.

This agency must generate a ton of revenue from authors (and their estates) from literature long ago. They are stuck in the mud, the only thing they've changed in the last twenty years is their decision to take emailed queries.

Dear Sarah,

Thank you for your email. I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work for possible representation, but I’m afraid I’ve decided to pass.

Please do not be discouraged as many best-sellers have been passed on numerous times prior to being successfully published. I wish you the best of luck finding an enthusiastic agent and publisher for your work.

Sincerely,

Katie Kotchman

On 5/11, I requeried Katie Kotchman with Venom. Today I've gotten the same R as Scififictionwriter did last month. I'll try her this summer with Chain Reaction.

She liked my pitch during a PitMad event last month, but I had already sub'd to another agent there. I was since then rejected by that agent but invited to send other work, so it was not all bad. Maybe KK will be better for me :).
