"*This was a difficult decision--I'm sorry not to read. (LOVE the idea--good luck!)"

With her signature asterisk: *This was a difficult decision--I'm sorry not to read. (I LOVE the idea of this but am squeamish/judgmental over the idea Dani was hooking up with Jared while Jared already had a girlfriend--cheating is not something I can codone, sorry...If this is revised--I would love the opportunity to read!)

So that sucks since my character's cheating is a major plot line to the story. I do appreciate her honesty. Cheaters are jerks and so is Jared, which is why he was so fun to write.

This agent has many form letters she chooses to use. Don't be fooled by the asterisk at the end of her reject form.

Thank you for your query, which I read with interest. Unfortunately, I
am not the right agent for your work. Do not despair as another agent
might feel quite differently.

Thank you for considering me. I wish you the best with your writing.

Best,
Amy Tipton

*This was a difficult decision--I'm sorry not to read. (This sounds amazing!--I almost requested to read but my workload is so overwhelming, I just can't. I'm sorry. Good luck here!)

Ended up passing. Not a fan of Dual POV-just a heads up for anyone else querying.
