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.

Queried 4/1… finally marking CNR on 9/13
I’m disappointed that I never heard back. She requested the full of my last book and had helpful feedback, and my new project seemed to fit her interests. She says she’s really far behind, but it’s been almost 6 months now.

I'd CNR'd as of 10 June 2021 and got a kind form rejection today.

Dear Erin,

Thank you so much for submitting [STORY] to me; I very much so enjoyed reading it. I have so many incredible picture book authors right now, though, that I need to be extremely selective about the projects I take on. While I connected with this one, I'm afraid it wasn't a perfect fit.

I wish you all the best finding an agent to champion your work. Hopefully I'll see it on shelves one day!

Sincerely,
Savannah

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.
