I had two offers and ultimately decided to sign with the other agent. Rebecca is so amazing - professional, enthusiastic and kind. I never had to wait long for an email response from her. In the end it came down to my gut feeling, but I would highly recommend working with her if you have the chance! I've no doubt she'd be a fabulous champion for your project.

Thank you so much for giving me a chance to consider your work. Unfortunately, I don’t believe I’m the right person to represent it effectively.

Publishing is such a subjective industry; so, please don’t be discouraged. I wish you the absolute best of luck finding an agent who can represent your work with the enthusiasm it deserves.
