5/18/23 YA SciFi - 80,000 wds. Rejected after 49 days. After reading the full manuscript, Maria sent me a really nice email saying "Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to read THE SAMSON PROJECT. You are undoubtedly a talented writer, and I enjoyed reading your work. However, the story isn’t the best fit for me and so I’ll step aside, as you deserve an agent who is wholeheartedly enthusiastic."

Fellow writers, this was lovely, after being ghosted by other agents. I appreciate her thoughtfulness. I'm sure she'll be a great agent if she makes you an offer.

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.
