Said I didn't have a "big enough author platform" and that preferably my follower count should be in the upper 700s. It stung a little, but I get why that would be a reason. She said if I built my platform I could query her again. It's nice to have actual feedback instead of a form rejection.

On 1/24/2019 I sent out a query to Jessie Stover. Here is hoping that I hear back. Will update this when I hear back.

Nice letter, saying she had a YA novel that was very similar right now, so she was passing at this time.
