5/16/2022: Kind, personalized pass. She had nothing negative to say, only that she didn't fall in love. I would highly recommend querying her.

Adult fantasy, 132k at time of query (now 118k)

epic fantasy, 101K

Four days after announcing she was open to queries, she posted that it was a mistake and only for conference participants. So I CNR'd it, and four months later received the "spark" form rejection which also includes "For whatever reason, I just didn't connect with this as much as I would have liked to"

Not enough enthusiasm / didn't feel "the spark" for the project. I'm appreciative she eventually got back to me, though!

Hi all,
This is Susan. Apologies for the confusion. I recently attended a writer's conference and for ease of taking pitch requests, I opened my Query Manager again and didn't use the conference form that QM has.

I have now updated my agent's page to clarify that I am ONLY taking requests from people I met with at the conference. I am not officially open for queries again and I'm sorry to not have an ETA on when I will be. As part of my position, I manage our agency's subsidiary rights so my plate is very full at the moment and I want to be able to give queries my full attention when I can provide it. Thank you all for your interest here and apologies again for the confusion.
