Short, personalized rejection (wasn't right for her list) - she was extremely kind and replied in a really decent amount of time, which I appreciate - seems like a great agent!

EQ (#PitMad Request - #ownvoices YA LGBT rom-com 82k) - 9/4
Full Req - 9/18
Offer of Representation!! - 9/24

I ended up with multiple offers and ultimately went with another agent, but it was a really tough call because Hilary is AMAZING. She read my manuscript really fast (asked for a phone call on 9/21), had spot-on notes, and is just such a kind and professional and grounding person on the phone. Plus, KT Literary just seems like a great place. Everybody should query her!!
