Thrilled to have connected so quickly on so many fronts. Michele is the most responsive, passionate agent I've ever been in contact with. I am so excited for what the future holds.

Full Request: 7.14, sent same day
Rejection: 8.23 - praised writing, but didn't "quite connect to the heart and aim of the story."

She was the most personable of all the agents I have interacted with. I'll fondly think of my hope-filled month. :)
