"Thank you so much for responding to my request and sending along your work. While I'm definitely on the hunt for more stories like this, I'm afraid I didn't fall in love with the storytelling here. I'm regretfully going to pass as it's not quite right for my list. Keep in mind that the industry is subjective, and another agent could very well feel differently. I wish you the best of luck."

Liked the premise, but couldn't connect to the characters with the way the story started. Suggested beginning it before this scene.

R: 4/18/22: I think this rejection was somewhat of a personal one. She mentioned liking the premise, but not falling in love with the narrative voice. I appreciate that!

12/3 Partial Request
YA Rom Com 74K
Upgraded to a full on 1/10
*Nudge on 2/23--quick response to say that she "forgot this was in my pending queue" followed by a rejection on my full on 2/24
Honestly, this one stung pretty bad as she was someone I would have really loved to work with. The feedback was slightly personalized but also super confusing since she said the issue was with the beginning of the book. If that was the case, why upgrade from the partial to the full? Also, I sorta feel like since she literally forgot about me that she didn't really consider my full at all, just wanted to clear it out of her inbox. Like I said, this one stung pretty bad, but I'm trying to stay positive! On to the next!

Submitted partial: 2/10

Normally I submit the day of a request, but had a surgery in the family so was a tad delayed -- hoping that doesn't count against me, and hoping for the best!
