Upmarket Psychological Domestic Suspense / Family Saga 97K
(This was after several revisions based on feedback from my new Developmental Editor, which resulted in a net expansion of >11k words, changing theme, query, and title of novel queried to her last May [to which I received no response])

Form rejections after full request. I did see that she rejected a lot of fulls, but wish she could have given even a sentence or two of feedback.

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.

Queried 05/18/21 - 99K adult psych/domestic thriller
Full Request 06/01/21
Rejected 07/02/21 but Cece was so kind, thorough, and helpful and I truly appreciated everything she said in her very heartfelt response. Truly a fantastic agent.

Signed up for a live 10-page consult & query letter review through Manuscript Academy. What someone posted below about their agency not asking for sample pages with the query is incorrect. I just looked at their submission guidelines and they ask for a query and the first 10 pages.
