Carrie was my agent when she was with Prospect. She's smart, thoughtful, extremely communicative, and fabulous on all accounts. If you find a place with her, you will be very happy.

I write Adult Historical Fiction.

Thanks so much for thinking of me with this project. Unfortunately, it doesn’t match what I’m looking for at this time. This is an incredibly subjective business, so I encourage you to keep submitting this and I hope other agents feel differently!

Best of luck!

Rejections always suck, but Carrie's was at least thoughtful, kind, and detailed. I appreciate her outlining what worked for her and what didn't.

Kindest most encouraging rejection ever! It wasn't a rejection as much as an encouragement to keep going and find the right fit. This MS is going to find a home in time.
