Request for a full 9/9/2020 144 days later!
I had to explain that the first ten pages she liked are now completely different. LOL!

Rejection after full request. Thoughtful, personalized letter with editorial notes. This is way more than I expected, particularly since the intern who requested my manuscript left the agency AND we're in the middle (beginning?) of a pandemic. It's always disappointing to receive a rejection, but I feel that my manuscript was treated with respect.

Thank you for sharing your work with us, and for your patience as we reviewed. While we enjoyed the idea behind GLITCH: A PRECARIOUS DUO, it doesn't seem like quite the right fit for our list, so we've decided to step aside.

This is a subjective decision based on our agency's needs at this time, and another agent may be looking for exactly this project. We wish you the best of luck finding this agent and thank you again for submitting to SLA.

All the best,
