78K - YA Contemporary Romance

5/11/22 - Rejection - Form Query

Thank you so much for querying me on XXXXXXX. Unfortunately I don't feel I'm the appropriate agent to represent your work as the project just isn't right for me.

Please know that this note doesn't speak to the quality of your work, and I am only one agent among many. I wish you the best in finding the right representation and hope the next agent connects with the material.

Thanks again for thinking of me.

On 3/7 she tweeted that she'd received 459 queries since opening on the 1st, which is usually how much she receives in a month. Said she's gone through about half of them.

@pwalford, that is so cool! I love when agents post their stats, especially ones who use QM. Sometimes I forget that there are plenty of people querying who don't use QT. :)
