Query letter only.
Next day, request for 10 pages
Rejection the day after, with personalized feedback that was very helpful. I actually applied her feedback and started to get more requests for my MS after that, so I appreciated that she took the time to provide her thoughts on what wasn't working rather than send a form rejection. This agent has it together.

9/25 EQ Space Opera 160K
10/12 realized I queried the wrong Jen. jennifer@unter is Jennifer Unter. So, while still in the queue, I suspect it's because of this.

Dont be like me :) Get your jens right

Query and rejection < 1 week. Psychological thriller, 76k words.

"Thanks for your query, but I'm afraid this doesn't quite sound like a fit for me. I'm going to pass, but appreciate the opportunity and wish you the best with this project.

Very swift and professional response. I love that it appears she is sending snippets of personalized feedback so quickly! "I'm afraid this isn't a fit for me. My taste in MG is really narrow and I'm not sure I have a vision for how to position something like this to stand out in a crowded market. I'm hopeful another agent feels differently, but I'm going to pass." Continues with best wishes! Sounds like this is mostly taste and what she personally wants to rep.

EQ 9/18/2022 - Query w/10
ER 9/19/2022

Same as most - very kind, polite response in just a few hours. "Not quite connecting with the voice here so I don't think I'm the right agent for this one". Connection to voice is a very personal response, so I'll take this as an encouragement to try again with others. Very professional and considerate!

Like many others, I received a very kind personalized rejection from Ms. Nadol. Queried 9/16 around 10:00 pm EST and heard back by 4:30 p.m. EST on 9/19.

"Your writing is solid, but unfortunately, I'm not finding myself quite head-over-heels enough with the concept to pursue this further"

Personalised rejection after 1 day - too literary for her. Fast and encouraging reply, much appreciated

Mostly form rejection with a bit of reasoning added in: "Thanks for your query, but I'm afraid this isn't a fit for me. I'm finding it hard to buy into this premise so think I'm probably just not the right agent for it. I'm going to pass, but appreciate the opportunity and wish you the best with this project." First rejection for my premise, so it's probably best she wasn't interested.

Followed up to my query in less than 12 hours to acknowledge receipt.
