But basically the nicest rejection I have ever received, with an invitation to resubmit if I make some revisions. She basically wrote me three paragraphs saying she loved the voice and premise and really wants this kind of story to exist, and she just had some issues with the order the stakes were presented in and wondered if the whole thing should be past tense. While I'm not sure those things will ultimately make sense for this story, her feedback was really encouraging and actually made me feel more hopeful than not! She clearly puts a lot of thought into the queries she receives.

Hi Stan,

Yes, I'm sorry for typing the wrong title. I am passing on SALEM CHARTER ACADEMY. It's not the right fit for my list at this time.

In the unlikely event you do not find representation, please keep me in mind. I am a fan of your stories and art!

Dear Stan,

My colleague, Kelly Sonnack, shared your query for your graphic novel project, THERE'S A ZOMBIE IN THE BASEMENT. You've been on my radar for a while, and I was excited to get a chance to read your work.

THERE'S A ZOMBIE IN THE BASEMENT has a fun premise, and I enjoyed reading your sample pages. Unfortunately, it's not the right fit for my list at this time, and so I am going to step aside for now.

Stan, I am so sorry not to offer you representation at this time. I have no doubt you will have great success with THERE'S A ZOMBIE IN THE BASEMENT, and I wish you the very best of luck as you move forward.

Thank you again for thinking of our agency. We truly appreciate the opportunity to consider your work.

Best,
Jennifer

EQ 6/8
CNR 7/20

Update: She liked two of my tweets on 7/25 and said she was curious to read my work. I told her about filing my query as a CNR and she said she was running behind on her queries. Fingers crossed - she seems very nice, and lots of positive comments from others.

Note, I was a DS client who found out on 7/25 that Lupine Grove was being closed.

Reply: 7/27 to set up phone interview
8/3/18 - phone interview and offer made. We talked for an hour and a half. I had prepared 30 questions to discuss based on my experiences with DS. I had a keen understanding of what I didn't want in an agent. JS addressed/answered all my questions without me even having to ask. She was enthusiastic, articulate, and very professional. She also wasn't pushy. She recommended I take 2 weeks and talk to other agents and also some client references. Some agents don't like when you ask for references, so this was a great sign.
8/5/18 - talked with three clients and two editors who all had glowing things to say about ABLA and JS
8/6/18 - accepted offer of representation and she immediately got to work on editorial comments for two PB manuscripts, directions for MG manuscript and establishing timelines for project tasks. I had her comments within 48 hours for a PB I planned to submit for a conference critique next month.

A+ for communication
A+ for organization
A+ for professionalism

Just saw this on the ABLA website, no idea how I missed this before: "Remember, a "no" from one of our agents is a "no" from the agency as a whole. If your work is rejected, please do not resubmit the same work to another agent at our agency."
