Query - 3/18/19
Rejection - 5/21/19
Paranormal/Historical Adult Romance - 100,000k

I got a little feedback, which is appreciative. And I quote: "We felt like events may have happened too quickly in your opening pages preventing us from getting into the mindset of your main character and your world."
At least it's something different than a typical form rejection, so I'm happy.

carajedwards and others who've CNR'd after recent requests - if you follow her on Twitter, you can see that she has been planning a writer's retreat in New Jersey for the last few weeks, and when I emailed her to follow up on my conference-requested submission, received an automated response that said she was considered "out of office" until June 8th. I doubt she's been reading anything in the meantime. I wouldn't give up hope just yet :)

Full MS: 3/25 (requested at conference)
CNR: 6/6

Based on other comments, I'm not expecting a response after two months. I was hoping for a personal reply because we met at a conference and I felt like there was a connection, but I understand everyone is very busy. I will update if status changes.

vmaggio, true, she did post that, but she hasn’t opened her query form yet so something must have delayed her.

"Unfortunately, I'm going to pass at this time. I wasn't connecting with the writing as much as I had hoped, so I don't believe I am the agent to champion this piece."

Met her at a conference and she requested the full there. I'm not sure how to track that she requested the full months ago but I just sent it now. Auto-reply that she's closed to queries.

Dear Alisha,

"Unfortunately, we're going to pass at this time, as the rhyme is not strong enough. We know you've put a lot of time and effort into your project, and we hope you keep at it."

ER - rejected on 4/22 said they felt like events happened too quickly to understand main characters mindset" they only requested 5 pages and only one event was described and wasn't described fully in those few pages so I felt like maybe it was a form letter?

EQ 2/8/19
ER 4/15/19: Thank you for submitting your query for [PICTURE BOOK] to Corvisiero Literary Agency for our consideration. Unfortunately, we're going to pass at this time. We found the allegory too heavy-handed and not entertaining enough for a child audience. We know you've put a lot of time and effort into your project, but do keep at it!

The publishing industry is very subjective, so what may not work for us could be just what another agent is looking for. We encourage you to continue your pursuit of publication. Keep honing your skills, learning about the industry, and always embrace a growth mindset.
