Email explained she was leaving agenting. Unsure whether my writing sample was what drove her to quit...

Hey all, just to clear up the confusion - yes I am leaving agenting. The next couple week are wrapping everything up as I transition away so I didn't want to leave my query inbox open as that would be unfair to all you queriers. I'm so sorry for the confusion and inconvenience and I wish you all the best of luck with your querying.

Cashwinne,
The agent contacted QueryTracker directly with the announcement that she is leaving agenting.

Has there been any confirmation on her twitter or anything? It seems odd that she would reopen to YA queries then leave agenting. She's no longer on their website, but I haven't seen anything saying she's leaving? Where is this coming from?

I guess these agents realized there's more money in actually writing books than trying to bank off other writers

What's with so many agents this month leaving agenting all together? What a business we're in.

I checked out their website and didn't see her name listed as an agent.

EQ: 7/9
ER: 7/15

Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, it's not a perfect fit for me. I apologize for not having better feedback - sometimes it’s hard to put to words something that is just a matter of personal taste. Remember this is a subjective industry, so even though your project isn't right for me, it might be right for another agent.

I wish you success with your writing, and I appreciate you sharing your work with me.

Query on 6/23
Form rejection on 6/26

I think it was a form rejection. Many people are saying her form rejection had something about Writers Digest. Mine didn’t. But still seemed like a form. See copy and paste below.

Hi Jason,

Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, it's not a perfect fit for me. I apologize for not having better feedback - sometimes it’s hard to put to words something that is just a matter of personal taste. Remember this is a subjective industry, so even though your project isn't right for me, it might be right for another agent.

I wish you success with your writing, and I appreciate you sharing your work with me.


Thanks,

Lindsay
