Thank you so much for allowing me to review TITLE. Although I found your query intriguing, I'm sorry to say I am not going to request more pages at this time.

As you know, this industry is highly subjective and this rejection is in no way a reflection of the quality of your work. I simply do not believe I would be the right agent for this project, which is why I regrettably have to step aside.

Thank you again for considering me, best of luck with your agent search and happy writing!

Form rejection.

She didn't say anything at all about my writing, story, or characters, she only mentioned the "Although I was intrigued by your query" part and said that she's just not the right agent for this. She didn't say why she's not the best agent for this like she's done with mostly everyone else, just that she's not the right agent for it, which implies that she didn't read any of my pages hence was why she had nothing to say about them. It all sounded very generic/form. Nothing wrong with that, but with all the praise she keeps getting for her rejections, I was expecting something more and wasn't impressed at all.

Submitted a second novel to Ms. Chuiton, an upmarket project with speculative elements at 80k words. Here is the personalized rejection:

"Thank you so much for allowing me to review [NOVEL]. Although I was intrigued by your query, I'm sorry to say I am not going to request more pages at this time.

"[Protagonist] is a very compelling character, and I love the speculative elements in this project, but I am unfortunately not the best fit for novels that lean so far into the upmarket category, I'm sorry.

"Thank you for me again and best of luck with your agent search!"

Thank you, LightofBeauty. I am so incredibly pleased with the agent whose offer I accepted.

Authors, please, please take heart. This really is a matchmaking game of sorts and it's such a boon when you come across someone who genuinely appreciates what you've done. For some of you, that may mean an agent. For others, it could be a publisher who accepts unagented manuscripts or a collaboration with other authors on a more independent route to publication. Whatever your situation may be, there are so many humans out there. Your work *will* resonate with some of them.

Very complimentary rejection--said the query made the story sound fascinating, but is not the right agent for themes related to substance abuse and addiction. Rare to get personalized feedback on a query, so I was pleasantly surprised! Seems like a great agent to work with.

Psychological Thriller rejected 9/22/22. Clara says, " of my clients is currently working on a similar project." I find this very interesting as I've been told my premise is "bizarre," so I am very glad someone found a home for their work, but it doesn't help me too much on my journey, unfortunately. Onward!
