Query Sent: 11/3/22
Rejection: 3/16/23

Thank you so much for sending your pages! Unfortunately, your manuscript isn't quite the right fit for me at this time. The voice of the sample pages was just a bit too introspective for me personally and didn't connect with me as much as I'd hoped. Due to this, I don't believe I'm the right agent to champion this piece.

I know you've put a lot of time and effort into your project. Take heart: the publishing industry is very subjective, so what may not work for me could be just what another agency is looking for. I strongly encourage you to continue your pursuit of publication.

Thank you for considering me for your manuscript and I wish you great success with your writing career.

Warm Regards,

Kortney Price

Queried: 5/5/22 (allowed because I had a previous review with her that included the ability to query within 6 months, so was able to submit even though she was closed to queries)
Rejection: 7/4/22 - Although she just changed agencies, she still responded. Rejection was kind and encouraging. I will submit to her again if I have something in the future that matches her WIP.
