Thank you for sending me your manuscript. You have an interesting and
unique story, but I don't think I'm the right agent for it. I wish you the
best of luck in finding the right representation who has a bit more
experience with the subject matter.

YA Speculative, 72k words

Ms. Robbins took just under a month to respond with specific, actionable feedback and an invitation to resubmit should I decide to go a few more drafts with this novel. This resonated with me as I wrote it between 1 January and 8 March of this year and began querying it soon after. I'm an iterative writer--I edit as I go--and felt the manuscript had the necessary polish by the time I submitted to BJ. However, her feedback made clear to me the ways in which a few other variables could be addressed as it was my first attempt at speculative fiction. She called it a "close one" and left me feeling generally encouraged. This is out with about a dozen other agents but I'm happy to tuck her correspondence in a safe place as I wait to hear from others and decide how to proceed. She doesn't request a lot, I believe she has a pretty strong sense of what she's looking for. But this was an overwhelmingly positive experience in terms of timeliness, insight and the sense that I was dealing with a true pro.
