Probably a form rejection, but very nice. Also encouraged me to feel free to query a different agent at Writers House if I felt they would be a good fit.

Form letter from Alec Shane, her assistant

Also add what Mander_Pander has stated. Jodi hasn't requested a YA since 2017, she now represents YA NYT Bestselling author Adam Silvera . Jodi is strictly business. My friend interned at the Writer's House. Big agents like Jodi, so even though you send them to Alec Shane her assistant you still label the query for her, the assistants already have the sense as to what the agent is looking for and the assistants go through the queries and read the manuscripts. If they think the manuscript is something the agent will like they hand it over to the agent again this is mostly for big literary agents. If you look at her client list it really explains it. So for example if you query her a vampire romance novel she's not going to take it cause Twilight was a international phenomenon. During dystopian, Shatter Me and Matched cause they were different and best-sellers. The thing is the YA market is very saturated, and Jodi knows all big editors at Big publishing houses, she knows what's selling and what isn't. A part from liking the project she mostly looks at whether or not its sellable, something different that publishers will give a big advance on (Twilight, I believe got around $200,000 as an advances but I'm not 100% sure). Agents don't really make money they get paid off on sales commission and royalties. In terms of Twilight, one of the reasons she took the project was cause the assistant at the time was so new she didn't know what to look for in queries and requested the manuscript, read it and gave it to Jodi, but also at the time Jodi knew it was going to be a big hit. In an interview Jodi said for her it's the manuscript that tells her whether she'll love it and whether or not it's sellable. If you want Jodi as an agent your book has to be something new and different she's never seen before. Hope people find this tip helpful. Some might want to try the new junior agents at the Writer's House as they are looking to build their client list

since her assistant is also an agent, do we have to include in the subject: "query for jodi reamer"? or simply "query: book title" is ok?
