Requested 50 pages on 1/7
All correspondance done through Query Manager. All comments form.
I didn't appreciate her suggestion that I get beta readers as if I would send to her without having received tons of feedback and made literally hundreds of revisions.

Wasn't impressed by the fact that she tweeted a passive-aggressive comment that was clearly about my query instead of just messaging me directly with feedback. She tweeted it the same day she replied to me. Why not just reply directly to the author with helpful criticism instead of sending a condescending form response and then taking the time to tweet about it??? It just seemed like she went out of her way to make me feel bad about myself. I see from other comments she's done the same thing to others as well. It's really disappointing to have someone like that working in a field like this. It would take less time to just be helpful to the author than it takes her to be passive aggressive on twitter. And to make it worse, she silences you. You are literally the only one who knows the hurtful comment is about you, even thought its in a public form. You can't send her a private message because she's hidden behind a wall of interns who won't pass it along. If you respond to her on twitter, then it makes you look bad to other agents. She knows she holds that power over authors and is taking full advantage of it.

Semi-personalized, brief feedback. Complimented voice, but did not connect with concept and events in alternating POV sections as much as she'd hoped. Subjective pass.
Since another agent who requested a partial said they didn't connect with my voice, it was reassuring to hear that Kaitlyn did, even if other story elements weren't for her. Onward!

She identifies as Literary Agent Apprentice.

Maybe I'm getting too sensitive but I found the form rejection patronizing. She suggests I follow Cris Freese's Guide to Literary Agents blog (what smart querier doesn't?) and that "we also encourage writers to gather beta readers and critique partners to help hone your craft; their suggestions can be invaluable." Having presented what I know was a polished query and a heavily beta-read and workshopped first ten plus evidence of being an experienced professional, I expect rejection based on tastes, preference, or many other reasons but not to be treated like a total newbie. Rant over. (And yes, she probably is just trying to be polite and helpful. Ugh, this process.)

Partial personal, partial form rejection. She mentioned that she liked the concept and that I have a strong writing style and that is was purely subjective for her to pass. She also gave a resource for me to check out and encouraged me to continue querying. Very professional and pleasant.

Thank you so much for your query, but I am going to pass at this time. Unfortunately, the concept and sample pages didn't connect with me as much as I'd hoped. Due to this, I don't believe I'm the right agent to champion this piece. Thank you for considering me for your work, and I wish you luck in your writing future.
