Not sure if her response was "helpful" despite it not being a form response. She basically told me my manuscript had a good concept but wasn't what she was looking for. I'll take a few days before I decide if that's "helpful."

ER: 4/12/19 - Loved the concept & writing but unsure how to market in a crowded genre. This felt DAMN close. Invited to query other projects, will definitely keep her in mind.

Query sent via QM at 5am, rej letter at 10am. Nice form letter.
Note to self: don't query at 5am when you have the flu. I rambled a little. Sigh.

Very polite rejection letter. Unfortunately she doesn't have any referrals to offer but wishes for the author to not give up search in finding the right agent.
