WF: 90K
Nudge with offer 8/27
ER: 9/1 Incredibly positive feedback, offered it to another agent she thought was a better fit, but that agent is buried right now. She Passed but said if my current offer falls through to give her a second look at this one or send her another project.
11/18/19: Still in communication, after she sent feedback on a second look on a FULL. Since she had it, I did a MAJOR revision and won an RWA contest in the Women's Fiction category. She'd like to see the new version.
12/08 Full revision sent
1/20/2020 Very kindly referred me to another agent when she chose to leave the agenting world. We actually plan to keep in touch.

I was just getting ready to send a query to this agent when I was redirected to a message saying she was no longer accepting queries. Ugh! Went to her twitter account (posted less than an hour ago) and found this: "It is with much sadness I report that I will no longer be a literary agent. Metamorphosis has been extraordinary-I hope you will consider someone else on the team for your work. I have enjoyed every person I’ve had the chance to work with during my time here. Best of luck, all!" :(

77K Romantic Comedy

ER: 09.30.19 The nicest, most positive, most helpful rejection I have ever received. She offered lots of praise, suggested I create more tension in the middle of my novel, and resubmit it in the new year. Said her editors are very picky with pacing and I just need to step it up a bit. Will definitely query her with other projects. She'd be amazing to work with!

I submitted a query and she politely rejected it. Her rejection was one of the most helpful and personal ones I have ever received. She gave me an invaluable tip and encouraged me when she didn't have to. I have no doubt she'll be a wonderful agent for the stories she champions. You won't regret querying her.

I submitted a query to Leanne and she requested my manuscript. Although she rejected my story, she gave me invaluable feedback. Her comments and suggestions helped me strengthen my story. I have been in the industry a long time and I have never come across an agent with so much heart. She genuinely wants to help writers. Her encouragement restored my doubts as a writer and for that I am grateful.
