Thank you so much for thinking of Nelson Literary Agency for your query. We wish we could offer a more personalized response but on average, we receive 500+ email query letters a week. Do know that every query letter and sample are read and even though your project is not right for us, it might be right for another agent so don’t give up! We are also sorry to have no agent recommendations to offer.

Nudge: 5/30/18 (Agency says to nudge after 3 weeks to check to see if email even went through. Worried my email got lost in cyberspace.)

5/31/18 Response from one of the first-round readers saying that my query has made it to her queue and she'll be getting back with me soon.
Crossing my fingers and toes.

ER: 5/31/18 Included personal feedback. Was really helpful. It's a bummer, because she seems awesome.

ER 5/22/18:

Liked the humor and voice in the sample pages but felt the story was too young for YA, and suggested I consider changing to MG.

Speedy and constructive!

Seemed like it was a personalised rejection! Mentioned that I didn't provide recent comp novels as the rationale for not being able to place this in the market, but the market is the market and I'm somewhat proposing something different from what it's got presently, soooooo *shrug*. It's a no-from-one-is-a-no-from-all agency, so I guess Nelson's out. Shame. Quressa seems cool.

She called me a "competent writer," though, so I'll take it. ^^
