Submitted my young adult historical romance manuscript on the 27th May and received a very polite response from Emily today, stating that my manuscript wasn't quite what she was looking for but that she enjoyed reading it and it was well-written. One of the best rejection responses I have received and her clients are very lucky to have her. :)

Said she was intrigued by the premise but it was too close to another project she had in the works.

It was a lovely form rejection, though. She stated that she was looking for specific items from her wishlist, and unfortunately, my project just doesn't check the boxes at this time (this is a paraphrase, btw). If I'm still unagented when I finish my next MS, I'll definitely be querying her again.

Echoing the sentiment that even her rejections are thoughtful, encouraging, and appreciative of the craft, hopes, and dreams tied to these stories, so I'm sure she'll make some lucky clients happy ^-^

Very kind and thoughtful personalized rejection. I really appreciated that she took the time to give feedback. As other commenters have noted, she really seems to go the extra mile with her responses. I'll echo BySarahJane: anyone who ends up with Ms. Forney as their agent is very lucky.

This was quite possibly the kindest, sweetest rejection anyone could hope to receive. I almost didn't realize it was a rejection at first because she had such amazing things to say about my manuscript, but ultimately chose to pass as she doesn't feel she has the right connections to champion the story. Anyone who ends up with Ms. Forney is incredibly lucky. I'll certainly be sending her my next one when it's finished. Good luck, all!

"Query Update (Woman standing<—me):

This month has been wildly busy with my authors and my main priority always goes to them. BUT now that things are slowing a bit, I am carving out this next week to clean out my inbox completely.

If I have your query, you’ll hear from me soon, kthanksbye.)

@Lancast87er That's a really nice rejection. When did you query her? (just looking to get an idea of response time.)
