She’s usually fast with responding but it seems she’s slower with her DVPit requests

Intrigued by premise, but didn't fall for narrative voice.

Pass 1st June, 2022

Thank you so much for sending along your work. I really wanted to love this one - the premise sounds amazing. Unfortunately though, I didn't love the voice and storytelling. 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.
Regards,

Thank you so much for responding to my request and sending along your work. While I really love the cultural elements here, I felt like the story needed more development. It felt a little slight to me. I'm sorry to not have better news, but 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, and please keep me in mind for future work.

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!
