Signed with her!

I'm SO happy, guys. She's always been a dream agent. She was so professional on the phone and I knew right away that her vision for my book and my career matched mine. Thank you, QueryTracker community! You were always so supportive. Don't lose hope in the query trenches. This is a long, sometimes disheartening journey, but in the end you'll succeed!

YA Contemporary Romance!

Thanks, thulsa_doom. I got a #DVPit request from another agent at the firm but if I could only query one, I wanted to make sure I chose the right one!

Signed me for my first book, sold it in a bad deal, and then dropped me when she didn't like my second book (which she didn't read all the way through). Query at your own risk.

It’s only a “submit to one at a time”. If Thao hasn’t gotten back to you in 12 weeks, you can query another.

Is this a "no from one of us = a no from all of us" agency? It's not clear from their website.

From the website: Please review our agents' profiles (on our Meet the Agents page) to select the agent for whom your project is most appropriate, and send it to her attention. Make your submission to only one agent at our agency.

It doesn't specifically preclude from re-submitting to another agent, but also doesn't make it clear that's ok. Does anyone know?

I emailed my query to Jennifer Kim on 4/6/18 and she shared my query with Thao. Unfortunately, it was a rejection, but it was personalized and super kind (the KINDEST personalized rejection I've ever received). I highly recommend both agents (though Thao has a very full YA fantasy list. Best of luck! :)

@sgduong, this is delightful!

I agree that it may be just timing, a lot of YA Fantasy was acquired recently, and still being acquired, so this is not at all a bad rejection...
