    I LOVE Adele! Just thought I’d say that after reading your iPod song 🙂 I was hoping to see (on TV) some lit agents like yourself at the Con, but I couldn’t see anyone 🙁

    thanks for the question. The most comomn reason I reject a manuscript it that the writing doesn’t resonate with me. This is a highly subjective business. And there is no way to predict what will work or what will take when the book makes it out into the world. So I really have to fall madly in love with a book in order to represent it. Falling in love with a book also makes me the biggest champion of the book, and helps me to get editors excited about the work.
