Form rejection.

Thank you for thinking to query me. I'm going to pass, but I wish you the best of luck finding an agent.

Note: I queried her before I read comments below. Considering her negative reputation, I wouldn't have been interested anyway.

@aus10phile I don't think so? It seems more like a her thing than a community thing!

@Steph_Goernitz @combatkatie I didn’t know about all this and already queried her. I can’t find any info though about any of it… it looks like it’s all YA authors who left. Did something go down in the YA writing community recently?

@combatkatie I'm surprised more people aren't talking about this, given how big of an agent she was for a while. That's a huge amount of authors to leave so quickly, and now according to another member she's not even doing YA anymore? Something definitely happened

@Steph_Goernitz The clients have left Hillary for a legitimate reason, and if I'd been repped by her I'd have left her too for the aforementioned reason (though I can't go into detail, as it's not my story to tell)

Polite rejection 2/8 said she is not taking on YA these days and is focusing on the adult market. Referred me to a colleague more interested in YA who ended up passing.

92K YA contemporary
