REJECTION: APRIL 21, 2021

although it broke my heart, the rejection was very kind. savannah told me everything she loved about it very kindly and went on to give helpful and specific critiques of what didn't work which i am already fixing because i believe she was entirely correct.

2/18: Request for additional manuscripts. Materials sent same day.
2/19: Asked to set up a call
2/26: Call and offer of representation.

I really loved my conversation with Savannah. She was very calm and listened to all my thoughts, feelings, and ideas. And her responses were very transparent. She provided editorial feedback, too. Honestly, it was a very tough decision (deciding between her and another agent) and I think any client would be lucky to work with her. Ultimately, I was offered and accept rep from my "dream" agency. But I highly recommend Savannah. It's clear that she is a very collaborative agent who is personally invested in her clients and would be a pleasure to work with.

"The picture books I take on deal upfront with more serious topics: politics, mental health, grief, etc. I appreciate and recognize the need for whimsical stories, but I'm not the best champion for them."
