Not even addressed to my name. Just a generic "Hello." That's disappointing. Also, I see a ton of partial requests on here from this agent. My novel specifically covers the topics she mentions being interested in on her agency's page, so if it's not a good fit - might need to revise her wish list.

Nudge: 03/12/21
She replied to my nudge in the morning and said it was still being considered. Apologized for the delay. She seems so lovely. I know not to get my hopes up, but Rachel seems like a great agent and I'd love to work with her.

Rejection: 04/01/22 While this whole process took quite a long time, Rachel gave a thorough and encouraging rejection -- she explained what she liked, but said she did not feel confident she could sell it due to the darker themes and today's climate. I mentioned I was moving onto another story & she said she'd be happy to read it.

I definitely recommend querying her if you're patient! There's nothing to lose!
