*fingers crossed!*
Kortney is so so so so nice. She replied personally to every one of my emails, and she's such a warm and excited person. If she offers, it'd be a delight to work with her!

I was surprised to see the rejection since the website said they do not respond. However, I'm glad they did respond since I hate not knowing.

ER from Kortney: 4/21

Kortney was SOOOOOO nice about my manuscript! She told me specific scenes she liked, specific characters she liked, and it's obvious she read till the end because she discovered the name of my main character (which isn't revealed until the last several pages). She couldn't fall in love with the POV though, so ultimately turned it down. I smiled through the entire rejection, haha. Definitely going to query her again in the future!

I appreciate that I got a response. I want to say that up front. Be prepared for a terse rejection letter if you receive one, though. It doesn't mention the name of the agent you query. And it's sent by a submissions coordinator who uses her signature line to pitch the agency newsletter, writing retreats, and a pitch workshop.
