Very quick repose time at the beginning of the year. Go ahead and query if you need to test your submission package. At least you won’t need to wait for months.

"Thank you for submitting [TITLE] for review and for your patience while I considered it. Unfortunately I am unable to offer representation at this time.

I am extremely selective with the types of projects I take on. In order for me to offer representation, I have to feel wildly passionate about a story, and that happens so rarely.

Please know that this is one opinion in a highly subjective field and another agent may feel differently. I wish you the best of luck and thank you for thinking of Thompson Literary.
