Thank you for submitting your query for MILLER'S COVE to Corvisiero Literary Agency for our consideration. Unfortunately, we're going to pass at this time, as we weren't able to get a feel for the stakes of your story and weren't hooked by your pages. 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.

Best Regards,

Thank you for submitting your query for GLITCH to Corvisiero Literary Agency for our consideration. Unfortunately, we're going to pass at this time, as we just didn't connect with the main character and weren't hooked by your beginning. We know you've put a lot of time and effort into your project, but do keep at it!

Bad experience with this entire agency.

I signed with Jennifer Haskin and Marisa Corvisiero in December. Jennifer quit in early April, literally days before I was supposed to go out on submission. Marisa said she'd consider taking me on as her own client and needed a week to read my book. I said okay, and held off on querying other agents since our contract was still valid. Two months went by and I heard nothing. I sent several check in emails to Marisa and none of them got a response, not even the email I sent that said I was uncomfortable giving out an exclusive for this long with no guarantee that Marisa wanted to represent me. I finally checked Marisa’s recent sales and saw she doesn’t have many (except for digital romances, which isn’t my genre) so I decided to send one more email saying I was going to start querying other agents. Did I get a response? No.

Corvisiero has a high turnover rate in agents. Check out their website and you’ll see a bunch of clients who are still listed even though their agents are no longer active. It’s weird. And if you sign with another agent here and they end up quitting, like so many over the years have ended up doing, get ready for a frustrating, very silent process.

@catsamoa, if you have access to Twitter, look up #cockygate

Then someone’s agent/lawyer thought it would be a good idea to copyright the word “Forever”. It was.... messy.
