Update: Agent #5 – Variations On A Theme

Agent #5 just got back to me, saying, “Thanks for letting me take a look. I’m afraid this doesn’t seem like the right project for me, but I’m sure other agents will feel differently. Best of luck placing your work.” I was a little surprised because of all the agents on my A list, she was one of the ones I thought most likely to reply with a variation on the theme of “Your Proposal Intrigues Me – Send Me More.” But then again, the one I very nearly didn’t even bother with came back and asked to see chapters and a synopsis so what the hell do I know? On the positive side, though, this email came from her personally, not personally assistantly.
