EQ - 2/18 women's fiction 99,600 words
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.

PR 17 days later
I conversed with Marisa via email about the controversy with one of her clients. She was super nice and professional and told me she loved my query and that my submission would be "the next thing [she] reads."
Nudged 3 months later. She hasn't even looked at it.
I wouldn't expect much from Marisa. She seems to promise a lot and then doesn't follow through. Just my two cents.
*Update*
11/16 form rejection from an agent apprentice.
I think it's super crappy to give a form rejection on a full or partial that you've had for six months. Just my opinion.

Thank you, Fj2018.
I hope it shines light on your success. Agents open the door where you would otherwise be unable to go. However, the author isn't suppose to go on vacation, stop the work and rest, or think they're finished. On the contrary, it's where the real work begins. There are many great stories out there that I, as a reader, will never hear about. These are, mostly anyway, from authors who just... well, stopped. This isn't the moment to go into silent mode. Publishing and the word LAUNCH means an author is propelled into a new realm of writing and advertising. There will be speaking engagements, opportunities with the writing associations you're a member with, tweets, blogs, vlogs, daily website updates, merchandising possibilities etc. The list only goes as far as the fight pumping in the writer's veins. YOU are the leading champion of your work and the agent is your major fighter chosen by you. Together you work as a team, but if you give up as a fighter your chosen champion can only go so far. This is the author's baby. Raise it, and it will grow.
