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.

MG Magical Realism.

I know she doesn't do fantasy/sci-fi, but thought I'd give MR in our world a shot. Alas, she said same as below and then, "I'm sorry, I don't do this magical realism/fantasy/fantastical work... Good luck here though!"

ER: 4/21/17 - A form letter with a personal note at the bottom admitting that the decision was difficult. She liked the query but doesn't handle my book's subject matter.

Response (albeit rejection) after five hours! But she gave me some positive comments

EQ: 1/19
ER: 1/20 This was strange because, first, she thought that my book was sci-fi/fantasy when I state in the first paragraph of my query that it's YA contemporary. I e-mailed her back telling her that it was realistic fiction. Then, she wrote, "I am overloaded right now and not taking new stuff, sorry." Even though it looks like from below she's made a request or two. And, if this IS the case, why isn't she closed to queries?? Hmm...

EQ: 1/5/17
FR: 1/8/17
ER: 1/18/17--weirdly, she said that the opening pages turned her off, so she was "tainted" while reading the rest of the novel. I've read interviews about her that she never reads sample pages with queries, which is frustrating because sample pages are listed in her submission requirements. I feel like if she'd read the sample pages with my query, she might have saved us both from being disappointed because she would have realized my opening scene was "too graphical" (her words) for her taste. It's great that she was pumped about my query, but if sample pages are there, I really wish agents would read them. You can have a fantastic query, but the writing might not be what you're looking for--hence the freaking SAMPLE PAGES!!! :)


YA Contemporary

So excited!!!!
