Asked for two weeks because I had other requests out. Received multiple offers, but ultimately SUPER STOKED to sign with Shari. Man, I've been waiting a long time to write this comment. Years and years, friends. Remember: professional writers are amateurs who didn't quit.

Submitted a query via Query Manager on January 19
Full request received on January 25 and submitted that same day
Kind rejection received on March 8

She said this one was really close for her--she loved the MC and called the manuscript a beautiful book--but in the end, it was a pass. I appreciate the rejections that make you feel like you might have a chance with someone else.

ashenoli - Form letters are just that, a form. Your novel may not fit their needs at this time. They may take YA, but maybe they recently signed a client who had a novel similar to yours. Until you get personal feedback from an agent that you can utilize to improve, which you will at times, keep querying and don't give up.

According to my research she was looking for YA manuscript. I submitted a query for a YA novel. Hopes dashed in less than 24 hours with a rejection in the form of a form letter. Don’t understand why it is not a good fit for them. Don’t know how much to believe in these agents.
