YA contemporary fantasy - 79,000 - And breathe. A form reject and not the nice one:

Thank you so much for thinking of Nelson Literary Agency for your query. Despite not being able to offer a more personalized response or a referral, do know that your query letter and sample for XXXX XXX was reviewed. Even though your project isn't the right fit, it might be right for another agent so don’t give up.


**I've held off on this one as long as I could. It's time to finally take the plunge and let the chips fall. So now I'll be standing over here, holding by breath, until I get an answer

I think I got the slightly nicer form rejection (strong concept/solid writing) but still a form rejection.

ER: 6/23 Flattering albeit confusing personal rejection. My first rejection on a full request from a cold query, not a pitch event. I was expecting more but my expectations are recalibrated effective immediately.
