Rejection received 9/19/2022
Very personalized, which is much appreciated.
"Thank you so much for considering me to represent your work -- it sounds particularly timely, given all of the recent news cycles about the monarchy! Unfortunately, I don't think that [TITLE] is a good fit for my list at this time, as I didn't quite connect to the pacing of the first few chapters. But I wish you the very best of luck in your querying journey!"

Onward with my journey! And, it was good to get a teeny bit of feedback on pacing.

I queried my urban fantasy novel, but got rejected because "he doesn't represent fantasy," and despite the fact that it's one of the available options on his query manager.
I appreciate the fast response though.

He does, rodneyreds, but only urban fantasy.
Sorry, at the moment QT does not break out sub-genres like that, but I'm working on it.

Should update genres, in my rejection letter he stated that he doesn't represent fantasy.

Which is worse, no response at all or a form rejection within two hours?


Thank you so much for considering me to represent your work. Unfortunately, I don't think that TITLE is a good fit for my list at this time -- I'm taking on memoir very, very, very selectively right now -- but I wish you the very best of luck in your querying journey.

All my best,
Jon

In two days, received the most glorious rejection letter ever. It was really one for the ages. Yeah, he rejected me, but somehow left me feeling like I won the Pulitzer. Made my day.

"Thank you so much for considering me to represent your work. Unfortunately, I don't think that TITLE is a good fit for my list at this time -- it seems a bit more speculative than what I'm looking for at the moment -- but I wish you the very best of luck in your querying journey."

I really appreciate the slight elaboration/personalization and the speediness of the rejection. This was very helpful, even if it was a rejection!

Told me he doesn't represent fantasy. There's some conflicting data on whether he does or doesn't, so thought I'd submit to him anyways. But this seems like a clear-cut update: Does NOT represent fantasy.

Form query 8/3/22
Email reject 8/8/22 with a note that the project isn't a good fit for his list b/c he doesn't work in a specific sub-genre.

Appreciate the personal touch--will definitely keep him on my list if I shelve this project and move onto the next, which is in a different sub-genre.

Lightly personalized but encouraging rejection. Seems like he would be great to work with.
