Form rejection 1/15/23

"I'm sorry to say the book isn't a fit for my list at this time, and so I must pass. I unfortunately didn't fall in love with the manuscript at much as I'd wanted to, so I'm sorry to say I don't have much feedback for you."

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to consider [TITLE]. While I appreciated the chance to read the query and sample pages, this one is not coming together for me. I'm sorry I can't be more specific. All passes are subjective at heart, so I encourage you to keep looking for your agent match.

Withdrew for revisions. Pitched to them virtually and was asked to send along pages.
Resubmitted: 12/19/22
Rejected: 1/3/22

Very kind and helpful rejection. They said my writing style was good but that the pacing in the beginning didn’t work for them. And were encouraging about submitting future works.

Very encouraging pass, agent said the writing style is great but they weren't drawn in by the concept, and to consider sending future manuscripts.
