Pitched her in person and LOVED her, but unfortunately, I think I lost her at the end there when I mentioned my novel was the first of 3 books I was planning in a series with rotating protagonists. She let me know that series just don't sell well and that if she'd seen that in my query, she probably would have immediately passed.

I'm honestly kind of shocked. Like, is that true?? I know in the romance world series are hella popular, and I've seen mainstream debut authors sell them successfully. I don't know. I felt unsettled after. Not a surprise when she rejected the full she'd requested early in the meeting.

Listened to her on the Manuscript Academy today doing 10 Queries. She said she requests lots of fulls because she likes to err on the side of requesting, but rejects most of them. I just realized their agency doesn't ask for any pages with the query letter, so it makes sense they'd have to request a lot of fulls to get any sense of the writing...
