Standard rejection, but said my work may be of interest to another agent with her group and made a referral. Always appreciate the re-route.

Dear Monika,

Thank you for the chance to consider your work. This isn't right for me, but I wish you all the best of luck in your search for representation.

Best,

EQ: 4/15/21
PR: 4/20/21 (synopsis + 50 pages)
Full request: 4/27/21
Revise and resubmit: 7/20/21 "Thanks for the chance to read your work. While I liked the world and the magic system, ultimately I found I didn’t connect with <MC> as much as I had hoped. I didn’t feel that she was as layered and complex as her world, and it seemed odd that she didn’t have more political and cultural context for all the plot’s twists and turns— in other words, she felt too much like a reader-insert, and not enough like an integrated part of her world. So I’m sorry to say that for now, it’s a pass. However, I would be happy to look at a future revision that addresses these concerns."
Worked on revising thru Dec 2021
Nudged 12/8/21 with offer to submit revised ms
Full request on revised ms: 12/20/21 (w/ apology about the delay, and confirmation that she will dig in in the new year)
Nudged 4/6/22
Update 4/8/22 "I’m sorry about the wait on this! I got absolutely buried in work over the new year and I’m just beginning to catch up. My assistant Lauren Bajek is currently giving this a second read for me, and I hope to be able to get back to you soon."
Nudged 7/21/22 and mentioned new adult sci-fantasy project
Rejected 7/29/22 but passed to Lauren Bajek. "I’ve been sitting on this because I do think it’s tremendously promising, but ultimately I think it’s not the right next project for me to take on. But I’m including Lauren’s direct email here, because she has been very excited about the book, and she may be interested in it for her own list. I’m sorry not to have better news— and when the new novel is done, I would be very happy to see the query for it."
What a journey.

Would recommend resubmitting if you do significant revisions.
