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!

ER 5/15/18

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. ^^

Last time I queried Quressa, she requested my full, so I had been hopeful about this, but I guess it wasn't her thing.

91k word Dark Steampunk

She wrote some positive things about my manuscript and that she loved my voice but ultimately passed as she says the steampunk/gaslight market is "soft" right now. She did encourage me to send her my next project. Definitely disappointing, but the only way to go is forward. If nothing comes of this manuscript, I may take her up on sending my next project along.

R&R: 3/13/18

She gave really solid feedback and said if I was willing to revise accordingly, she'd love to take another look at it. I'm waiting on four other agents who have the full, so I'm going to sit on this R&R for a bit. But the end is in sight, one way or the other.
