PR: 10/2 from Logan Savits in Sarah's behalf, first 50 pages.
ER: 10/9 Form rejection.


Thanks so much for sending us the partial of ____, which we've just had the chance to read. You clearly are a talented writer, but I'm afraid this is not for me. These things are, of course, matters of taste, and I'm certain another agent will feel differently.

Thanks, again, for sending it my way, and best of luck moving forward!

Yours,

SB

PR 11/18/16 via Logan Garrison Savits (sent later that morning)
ER 12/9/16 (personalized form) This was terribly disappointing, after my only partial request so far. She seems like an amazing agent. I just wish she had provided me with some helpful feedback I could have used for revisions.

I don't think there are strict rules about eligibility -- a success story is anyone talented and persistent enough to land an agent in this extremely competitive market!

You could try contacting Patrick (admin) for confirmation. Again, huge congratulations - !!!

thanks redwriter31. what is posting your "success story"? anything to help.
ah, see that on the site now. Not sure if I am eligible? I didn't find the agent via query tracker, but did use query tracker to post my query journey and see where others were in their dealings with agents.
