I had a consultation with Andrea through the #mswl Manuscript Academy, which was SUPER helpful. We talked about the market for my book and came up with a plan for revising it if I don't get an offer. She then requested the full manuscript, and although she ended up rejecting it, she was fast, kind, and courteous throughout. I highly recommend querying her.

Full Request, followed by what I thought was personalized until I checked on here. :(

"There's some great prose in these pages--in fact, the quality of writing is far superior to most of the material that crosses my desk. And I thought there was a great sense of atmosphere throughout. It's with regret, though, that I must admit that this is coming down to a case of like and really admire, but not absolutely in love. For some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on, the story itself just never ultimately completely captured my imagination as much as I had hoped. I’m so sorry! Obviously this is a very subjective reaction. But, in spite of this manuscript's strengths, I'd better bow out. I suspect that, based on my above reservations, I just wouldn't be the best advocate for the project.

XXXX, thanks so much for giving me this opportunity. It is much appreciated, and I'm sorry to be passing. I'm sure another agent will be a better fit. Thanks again, and all the very best of luck in your search for representation."

She seems like she'd be awesome to work with. Really bummed about this.

Entered Sun vs Snow with a revised manuscript, and Andrea requested the full. So excited she's giving it a second shot!

Dear Sierra:

Thanks so much for sending along the sample pages of The Monster Within. I’m sorry to say, though, that I just wasn’t as completely drawn in by the material as much as I had hoped. What with my reservations, I’d better bow out. Thanks so much for contacting me, though! I really appreciate it, and wish you the best of luck.

I queried her reply which was a superficial (to me) reply aka "Form Reply" and this is what she wrote:"Yes, I’m afraid I’m highly selective in what I take on and what I think I’m able to place based on my connections. Thanks again and best of luck" Which is a sight better than the old saw "It's not the best fit."

Form response, same as person below, but at least she takes the time to reply and type the title of the novel into the letter.
