EQ 2/7
CNR --> ER 4/3 I CNR'd her but I checked in with her anyway because her PM profile says writers can check in if they haven't heard anything after 6 weeks. I wanted to query another agent at Writers House so wanted to make sure it was a definite pass. She responded same day, same form rejection as cheesymoonboy below.

I sent a query on 1/2/19. I received a nicely worded rejection on 2/15/19 for my MG mystery. It's nice that she personally responds to everyone.

Allie liked my pitch during #DVpit last year, and while she ultimately passed on my partial, the feedback she gave was detailed, thoughtful, and extremely kind. We exchanged a few emails back and forth, and she invited me to send her another project if I had one available, so I did - some weeks went by but I just received a message from her apologising for the wait as she was considering my project, and stating that while she's not the best fit for my concepts, she is "so grateful to have been able to read your work. If in some unlikely turn of events, you do not end up with representation please do continue trying me with future projects. I will remain a huge fan of you and your work".

The sheer thoughtfulness, kindness, and generosity of this response has changed my whole outlook on the (painful) process of querying. I am so touched by her response and I honestly think that whoever has her in their corner is very, very lucky. She truly is a wonderful person and I feel incredibly fortunate to have been able to work with her in this way.

I submitted a query to Allie about 2 days before receiving an offer of publication. I sent her a quick email, not expecting to hear back the week before Christmas. She was EXTREMELY kind and didn’t have time to read before my deadline. I recommend querying her!

I’ve now had a chance to review your work and I’m sorry to say I don’t feel I’m connecting wholeheartedly with your writing, despite its many charms. So at this time, I feel it best to step aside.

Please know that this is a very subjective business and that tastes range widely among agents. Someone else may feel very differently and you deserve someone who is passionate about your work and is confident about their ability to position it.

I truly appreciate the look and wish you nothing but the best of luck with your future endeavors.

Sincerely,

Alexandra

Nudge 12/14/2018 (a bit early, but she shared on twitter that she has issues with novels featuring murders - mine has a gruesome crime scene right in the first chapter, so I asked if I should send a query to another agent from her agency).

Alexandra sent a very kind email confirming her preference on 12/17/2018 and suggesting other names from her agency.
