EQ (via online form): 4 April 2018 - #KidPit favorite

10 May 2018 - Seems like she went through a lot of queries in the past few days but mine has been skipped. I'm hoping it means I'm in a "maybe" pile somewhere...

2 June 2018 - personalized rejection telling me what didn't work for her

Either she skips around or she skipped me. I did mess up and submit to an assistant that was only liking pitches during whatever pitch event just passed. That assistant passed with some feedback.

Not sure if I should nudge Cate or just wait.

UPDATE: I asked if I could resubmit since I've gone through a mentorship and edited my query and MS.
"Fell free to resubmit."
She declined the original query so that I could resubmit when I'm ready.

@horrorchix89, it does look to me like she skips around a bit. She hasn't looked at any of the subs sent on the day I sent mine (at least none of the ones on QT), but several before and after that day. I can only guess she'll come back to those queries.

Fast, thoughtful response.

'Thank you for thinking of me and Corvisiero Literary Agency, but I'm going to pass on this project. While I think this is a great start to an interesting premise, I don't feel I am the best agent to champion this work. For me, the narrative still requires quite a bit of work than I can take on at this time. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries.'

A great example of a great agent. Really appreciated her response and so quick too. Wish I could have been her client :) Ah well.

Pitched at a conference in July. Submitted requested query, synopsis, first 3 chapters on 9/21/2017.
ER 12/28/2017. Polite and personalized with my name; didn't fall in love with the project the way she'd hoped, and also thought that 100k+ wordcount is too high for a debut novel (believes debut authors/books are better off at closer to 85k, or less).

A shame, because she's really nice in person, but this rejection wasn't really a surprise (and I don't necessarily disagree with her about the length haha). But just FYI to future queriers: she may not be the best fit for longer books!

Very hopeful for this one. Sounds like a perfect fit for current/future projects.
