@JohnEvans86, Ernie posted your query on Twitter. https://twitter.com/erniechiara/status/1575123813427290119
Sorry, but telling agents you refuse to query and to "just f***ing read it" is just asking for an instant rejection.

Not even enough time to even read the actual submission. QM staff insists that agents are not just auto-filtering and deleting submissions unread.

Form Query: 9/18/22
Form Rejection: 9/18/22 (23 min after submission - very quick turnaround!)

"Thank you so much for sharing [TITLE] with me, but after careful consideration of your query and opening pages, I'm sorry to say I've decided to pass. I know this isn't the news you were hoping for, and I understand how highly subjective these things can be. But, of course, what's not right for one agent may be exactly what the next one's been looking for.

Finding the right agent match is so important, and I know how daunting the process can seem. But each time you hear that an agent is not the right match means you're one step closer to finding one who is.

I'm truly grateful to have had the opportunity to consider your work, and I wish you nothing but the best as you continue on your path toward finding a great agent match and achieving all your publishing goals."

Very long form response. Less than 24 hrs. The second one I've gotten today. Not sure what's gotten into these agents. I'm supposed to forget they exist before they reply.
