Query 5/29/21 86K Adult Psychological Suspense
Reject 6/4/21
"Please know I personally read each query and that some of these rejections are based strictly on the subject of material, which may not be an appropriate fit for my interests. I have worked with many clients who endured long terms of rejection before they found the winning combination for themselves. They refused to give up, as I hope you will continue to do. Thank you again, and I wish you all the best in your publishing journey."

"I regret that MLM is unable to take you on as a client at this time. We receive many queries a week and as such we must turn down many projects that might have great commercial potential.

Please know I personally read each query and that some of these rejections are based strictly on the subject of material, which may not be an appropriate fit for my interests.
