Full MS rejection: 5/3

Kendyll, Marisa’s intern (now agent apprentice) gave me a good amount of detail in her feedback regarding my full manuscript. She had a lot of nice things to say overall, but didn’t connect with the love interest, so ultimately passed. She urged me to revise and continue querying. Despite how hard this one hit, I appreciated her feedback.

I had a roughly similar experience with Nikki Terpilowsky. I was notified of an Offer of Representation from her, but never communicated with her directly, only with her assistant. I was traveling without access to phone or email, and missed a deadline due to earlier miscommunications. The Offer of Representation was rescinded by her assistant, and that was the end of that.

1/23/22 - 60k cont romance
1/31/22 - full request from Emma Konn (22-year-old "apprentice"). Submitted thinking Marisa Corvisiero would be involved since I queried her.
4/18/22 - rejection from Emma Konn letting me know she didn't connect with my protagonist enough to champion the novel, a link to how to be a better fiction writer, and recommending I send it through betas.
I didn't even query her, I queried Marisa Corvisiero. I would have said no thanks if Emma Konn was the agent asking to represent me because I was diligent about who I queried and she was not on my list. I wish Emma had her own QM because I would have loved feedback from an agent with experience in this business.

@NightSky
Thanks for the info. I had an Offer of Rep from Nikki Terpilowski but because I was away from phone reception for a few days, I missed the deadline to request an autosignable Agreement in time, and her assistant rescinded the Offer. I've been fine-tuning my NF Proposal since then.

@TooMuchCoffeeMan
Congratulations on your full requests! Regarding a nudge on a full, you should wait 3-4 months. There are some agents that will specify if you should nudge them sooner, but in general it's better to give them time. Good Luck!

hunteroftheforest did you inquire as to the status of the full review at any time during those four months? I've got three full reviews (out of many, many rejections) going on for a couple of months now, but I'm not sure if I should inquire yet.

I received a request for a full manuscript 4 months ago from Maggie Sadler, Marisa's apprentice. It's now been rejected, but Maggie gave thoughtful, detailed feedback in two areas I can improve. Maggie seems to have good communication skills.
