Contacted her through the manuscript academy, got a ten minute session and I got a bunch of useful tips for my query letter. She says she’s not into vr for sci fi novels. From the time of booking to the appointment was about two weeks so super great way to get feedback. Many other agents are on there.

Thank you for submitting ____ 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.

All the best,
