Very warm and personal rejection and she said I should query with future projects. I truly appreciate her taking the time to personalize her communication with me. Hope someone lands her as agent. She seems great.

Really excited about this one! I'm pretty confident in my synopsis so hopefully I can see a FR with this one!
ER: August 27. I'm pretty disappointed but there's still lots of agents out there so!!

EQ- 6/6/18 Memoir First Ten Pages Plus Chapter Synopsis
PERSONALIZED rejection email- 7/17 (there’s much to be admired about your writing (and the exciting, original concept!), this one isn’t quite right for my list.
I followed up with a thank you note and she replied with encouraging email suggesting that I not take rejections personally. (You are a very strong writer.)

Queried 7/28 * MG adventure-thriller
Full MS requested 8/1
Nudged when received another offer
Offered Rep on 8/8
Talked to her on phone. Really great conversation. She's knowledgeable and passionate and although just getting into agenting (which was why I went another direction), she knows the business from the writer's perspective (she's a published author). If I didn't have my options I have (multiple offers), I would have felt comfortable accepting rep. I'd recommend (and I've been through this before & have dealt with a bunch of good agents).

Within a short time after I submitted the query, replied that it sounded wonderful and requested the full proposal. Never a word from her after that. Complete silence, even after I once emailed her to ask if she received the proposal. .Pretty rude.
