Supportive personalized rejection letter with recommendations to query 3 other agents at Writers House. Fast and kind agent. Would highly recommend querying when she's open to them again.

Personalized rejection with suggestions to query a couple other WH agents who might be more receptive of the MS.

A polite rejection. Although she rejected the MS because she doesn't represent space opera, my MS wasn't space opera or has anything to do with space!

Thank you so much for giving me the chance to consider your work. While I appreciated the chance to read, I’m afraid I’m not connecting as much as I’d need to in order to feel like the right match. You deserve an agent who is as passionate about your project as you are, and who has just the right vision for its publication. Wishing you all the best with the next steps, and I hope to see your book on shelves one day. Thanks again for thinking of me for your work.

@amby_b Nudge at 8 weeks. Sometimes things fall through the cracks -- that's what I did and she responded soon after.

Very kind rejection letter saying that while it didn't connect with her, she wishes me luck and hopes to see my book on shelves so that's nice :)

@amby_b, I'm in a bit of a similar situation. I submitted to AM about 30 days ago and have received no response.

@amby_b, she's had mine for 75 days!! I've kind of given up on a response at this point, and it seems weird because it looks like she responds to everything.

@amby_b based on her timeline, she usually goes back and replies to whatever she “missed”. I’d say give her a couple of weeks before resending.

Everyone seems to be hearing back super fast! I queried about a month ago and still haven't heard back. Do you think it may have been missed and I should re-send? Or would it be in a maybe pile and I should just wait longer?

Also takes picture books, but auth/ill only -
I’m looking for quirky and laugh-out-loud picture books filled with heart, and, as in all categories, for stories featuring diverse characters by diverse creators - books that allow kids to see themselves in the stories they read. I’m passionate about working with author/illustrators who have stories they have to tell, and who are excited about sharing tales that children will remember in their teens, in their thirties, in their sixties...stories they’ll want to pass on to their own children and grandchildren. **At this point in time, I'm only taking on author/illustrators and illustrators of picture books.**
