Kind step aside: 1/26/24

"Congrats on your offer of representation! This one definitely caught my eye, and you have such an interesting concept. That being said, my bandwidth is stretched tight devoting time to my existing clients and their new manuscripts with the start of 2024, so I simply can't read very quickly at the moment or have room for a new client at this time. With that in mind, I'll respectfully step aside in favor of the offering agent and wish you the best of luck going forward on your publishing journey. Sounds like a great novel, can't wait to see it on the shelves."

12/10/2023 Polite nudge
12/11/2023 Kind rejection; enjoyed the concept but felt the world-building wasn't unique enough to attract editor attention. (I've gotten this before from other agents.)

queer YA Fantasy/Romantasy

In short: If you've been waiting a long time, just sent a nice little note, and it looks like she will get back to you.
