Very nice rejection. "Thank you so much for your email, and I’m glad to hear from you again. In the time since we last corresponded, I’ve shifted focus and don’t work in the young adult space, so I’m taking the liberty of cc’ing my fantastic colleague X here – X does work in this space and she’s interested in your idea.

I’ll leave you both to continue the conversation directly."

ER: 9/29/16 = She read the first 100 pages. "I was intrigued by the idea of the piece, but ultimately didn’t find myself connecting to the pages or the voice the way you deserve from your agent."

On 1.20.16, I've requeried Kari with Venom. Over the weekend, I've heard back from her with a pass--no reason. I'll try her this spring with Chain Reaction's requery.

4/1/16: On 3/18/16, I've requeried Chain Reaction to Kari. Today she passed with no reason. So I'll try Jennifer Joel this spring with Venom.

Is Kari a query only agent, or a query w/ sample material agent?

EQ 8/16 (automatic out-of-office response)
CNR: 10/18

Upper middle grade urban fantasy

Everyone else seems to be getting at least a quick reject. Should I have queried her again? I assumed she didn't discard all incoming email just because she was out of the office.
