63 k Hi YA Fantasy
ER: Thank you for submitting XXXXXX 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,

Samantha

It says here she reps horror, but I can't find that info anywhere else. Does anyone know if she actually reps horror?
