Thank you for querying me with the first three chapters of (book title). I'm sorry to say that, while the manuscript sounds interesting, it is not a good fit for me at this time.

Thank you again for the opportunity to read (book title), and I wish you the best of luck with your writing endeavors.

4/18/2021: We understand she's currently closed to queries, but we wanted to give her a chance to read in case we receive an offer a rep from the others who also requested a full at the end of last year, of which she was one.

9/8/2020: Unfortunately, we were directly in the path of Hurricane Sally, so we are still without internet/wifi. We let her know the situation with our technological issues, and she was very understanding. Will update this when I'm able to send out fulls again.

Paused Query: 10/7/20 - sent message asking if I should withdraw and resubmit because I am consulting an editor and will be substantially reworking my project. Response - Thank you for letting me know! Why don't you withdraw this query and requery when you're ready. Good luck!

7/13/20 - Twitter update: A quick query update: I have responded to all QueryManager queries through July 9th.

I still have a few I'm holding over to read again.

I just checked QueryManager and mine is still listed as having no decision. Perhaps She's still holding onto mine. I'll keep it open a bit longer.

Vague rejection letter - personal - saying that she did not connect with my MC (named). How this helps me, I don't know. It would be nice to know why, so if there is a character flaw, I could fix it. This rejection stung as I was assured by others that she would be a great agent for me. Oh well, guess not.

Jana requested a different ms of mine last year and ultimately passed with kind, uplifting feedback. She seems like a delight to work with, so fingers crossed that she falls in love with this story! :)

I've queried Ms. Hanson with two manuscripts. Both times she responded within 10 days with very kind and specific reasons for why she decided to pass.
