Upmarket/Lit Fiction
6/15 - Queried
9/16 - Full Request
12/5 - Thoughtful rejection with nice advice. "We enjoyed the pacing of your narrative and felt it was very readable. However, we didn't quite connect with the book in the way we would need in order to move forward. It felt a little quiet to us and we wished there had been a little more intrigue/surprise. So, I'm sorry to say that while we enjoyed your sample the material does not seem to be a fit for Bonnie."

Rejection @ 74 days, right on time. This was a thought-out reply from Bonnie's assistant Lily Rosen.

Even though she is listed here as an agent who reps thrillers, per her rejection she does NOT represent PSYCHOLOGICAL thrillers. Just an FYI.

in her website "In fiction my taste runs to the literary, to voice-driven and genre-bending fiction and smart thrillers." literary is not part of her genre in the page.

Dear Jennifer Kathleen,

Thank you for thinking of Bonnie Nadell for Blank, I'm sorry to say, but your project does not sound right for Bonnie's list at this time.

We wish you the best of luck with your future queries.
