10/17 Update: It's been a few weeks since she rejected my query, but today she emailed and asked for me to send my first 50 pages? Not sure what's going on but either way it's great news to me!

Rejection was very nice, said she wasn't falling in love with it as much as she should but wished me luck and said to feel free to query again in the future.

"Thanks for your patience while I read this and thank you so much for sharing your manuscript with me. I enjoyed the read – you’ve got a great voice here, and I really liked the concept, but in the end, I just didn’t fall enough in love to be able to offer representation. But of course, these things are a matter of personal taste. With regrets, I’m going to have to pass."

4/16/21 - LGBTNpit "like" submitted query with 25 pages
4/29/21 - requested full
8/10/21 - rejection - see below

Thanks for your patience while I read this and thank you so much for sharing your manuscript with me. I really wanted to love this, and I enjoyed the read – you’ve got a great voice, but I'm not sure I know what to do with this manuscript and who to send it to. I've really struggled selling graphic novel scripts with no art attached recently, so I think I have to let this one go. But if something changes and you have an artist attached and can share some panels, I'd be open to reconsidering.

Thanks bubblyian. I believe both addresses go to the same place, but I updated it here just to cut down on confusion.

Their website says the email address should be:"rena@dhliterary.com", not as shown on this website. I have submitted to both, just in case. I will let you know what happens....
