She praised specific things in my manuscript which I appreciated, but ultimately said she didn't feel a draw/couldn't vision editorial suggestions. I think Catherine is a very thoughtful agent, and would recommend anyone to query!

@dragnipur okay, thank you! I just resent the nudge and still didn't get an automated response so I'll just hope that they've received it :)

@kawanope I did receive an automated response to my nudge that I’d received a full request, yes.

should there be another confirmation email if nudging?

I nudged per request to let Cho know that I'd gotten a full request (as well as an offer of rep I'm not sure about taking tbh), and Cho got back to me within a few hours telling me that she wasn't surprised by my success as she loved my premise and opening pages, but didn't think she was the right fit purely because she doesn't take on many YA projects, especially within the YA Fantasy space. Kindest rejection I've ever recieved.

4/15- EQ YA Fantasy
4/28- Nudged with full request from another agent per agency guidelines
5/4- Personalized, polite step aside. She praised specific things from my sample pages but said she was not taking on much YA.

Very kind and fast response!
