This one stung :( I e-mailed back and forth with her about another project last year and she was great. Best of luck to the rest of you!

I got *the most detailed* and nice step aside from Katie after another agent's offer of rep. It seemed like she really understood the manuscript - she looks like a cool agent.

ER 11/7/17 Thank you for your email query. I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work for possible representation, but I’m not the right agent for it. I think you have an intriguing concept, but I’m afraid that the first chapter just didn’t pull me in as much as I had hoped. Of course this is only one response, and tastes vary widely among agents. Thanks again for the look, and please do think of me again in the future.

Thank you for your email query. I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work for possible representation, but I’m afraid I’m not the right agent for it. The concept just didn’t grab me, and you deserve an enthusiastic agent who can champion your work. Of course this is only one response, and tastes vary widely among agents. I wish you the best of luck finding the right home for your work.
