ER: 05/17/19, personalized -- loved my voice but thought the timeline was a bit rushed. Said her opinion is subjective and is sure another agent will snatch this up. If not, wants to see future works. Kristy is so amazing. I really recommend you guys query her!

Kristy requested to see a query for this while she currently has my adult romance full.

PS: REALLY eager to add rom-coms to her list.

After a personalized full rejection on my previous contemporary romance, I pitched her this one and she asked to see it. Fingers crossed!!!!
FR (one hour later!!!): 01/28/19, sent same day

04/26/19: Sent message via QM form. I've decided to withdraw the few queries & fulls I had out for this MS to focus on my YA romance, but Kristy's personalized rejection for a past novel and enthusiasm regarding this MS prompted me to reconsider withdrawing her full. Instead, as unconventional as it may seem, I asked her if she's already started reading or if she's planning to soon, in which case I'd like to wait for her response. If she passes, I'm going to query her with the YA romance. I must have queried over 200 agents across 3 manuscripts at this point, and none of them has been as professional and considerate as Kristy. It would be incredible to work with her! :)

04/29/19: Kristy asked for more time to consider the adult romance, and also asked to see a query for the YA romance!

ER: 05/17/19, personalized -- absolutely loved my voice from page one, but wanted more subplots and MC's char development. Asked to see future works as she really would love to connect with me. A fantastic rejection as far as they go. <3

PS: REALLY eager to add rom-coms to her list!

I'm a little bit surprised because Kristy previously read a full MS of mine and gave detailed and glowing feedback but ultimately decided it wasn't the right fit. She offered to read any future MS, and this one didn't even get a partial request. The rejection looked like a form response other than, "thanks for thinking of me again." Bummer.

VERY encouraging feedback; passed due to subjective reasons -- asked me to consider her for future projects as she loved my voice. So I pitched my next project and asked if I should query. Let's see. Regardless, Kristy seems like a fantastic agent! :)

9/15/2018 - Kristy requested my full as part of a contest she judged.
9/24/18 - Full sent
10/23/18 - Emailed that I had revised based on feedback from my PitchWars submission and asked if she would like to see the revision. I never received a response.
1/14/19 - Received a brief rejection that she loved the concept and heroine, but not the hero so she wasn't invested in the romance.

(So I messed up, here. Accidentally re-queried her the same ms she rejected a year ago, 1/18. I have made major revisions, however, so I hope she will take another look even if she recognizes the title or it pops up in her Reject Files. Since the submission is by online Form only, with no email accepted, and it clearly states to send messages only regarding a withdrawal or notice of rep offer, I'll just have to wait and see.)
