I queried Suzie after she liked my #DVPit tweet, and though she ultimately passed, she offered me really helpful feedback on my first 10 pages. Thanks, Suzie!

We’d worked together previously so the rejection was personal and kind as always. I submitted again to her because she’s the best. One of the top YA agents. She didn’t think it was a right fit because one of her clients is doing something in the same time period/setting. Landing Suzie is tough, and I imagine she’s got a big list now. But if she connects with your project, you’ll hear from her.
