Polite decline. Prompt Response. 08/06/2021 LGBTQ+/Sci-Fi
Dear Atticus,
Thank you so much for thinking of me. I appreciate the chance to consider VIOLATION. Unfortunately, the project is not the right fit for my list at this time, and so I am going to step aside for now.
Thank you again for thinking of me. I wish you the very best of luck as you move forward!

I first queried Saritza last summer after an SFFPit like, but got a rejection a few days later.

After a year of revision, I got another like from her at this year’s July SFFPit. She said she remembered me and asked for the first three chapters. Ten minutes later she asked for a full, saying she devoured the sample pages and couldn’t wait for more! :)

Due to extenuating circumstances it took me a while to send the full, but I did on 9/3. On 9/15 I received an offer from another agent(!!!), so asked her to respond by 9/29. Today, Saritza responded with the kindest pass I think I’ll ever get:

You are a wonderful writer, and [TITLE] is a terrific story but even as I read it, I kept asking myself if I could offer you the proper time and attention as I've recently signed two new authors whose works I'm currently on working on. I quickly realized that I would be doing you a disservice if I were to take this on and therefore feel I'm not the right fit to represent it. For these reasons, I have decided to pass and step aside.

However, I am delighted to hear that you may have found representation, and I wish you the very best of luck as you move forward!

Seems like she’d be a terrific agent to work with once her workload slows down a bit. Good luck all!
