ER: 2/13/17 - A very nice form letter. "...Do know that every query letter and sample are read and even though your project is not right for us, it might be right for another agent so don’t give up! I’m also sorry I have no agent recommendations to offer. Good luck with all your publishing endeavors."

Hadn't heard from her since her move to Nelson so I emailed asking if my partial was still under consideration and she said mine was one of a very few that she didn't have the time to get to before she left and hopes to have an answer for me soon.

Interesting to see if she is more receptive to middle grade now that she is at the Nelson Literary Agency. She doesn't seem to have responded well to it before.
