Rejection after three days of sending in a picture book manuscript. Her email back was very nice and encouraging.

Thank you for your query letter.
I'm sorry not to offer to read your manuscript or offer to represent you, but it doesn't sound like a good fit for my list.
Publishing is very subjective, and this is just one opinion. I encourage you to get other opinions.
Best of luck in all that you pursue

Does anyone know if this is a "no from one is a no from all" agency? I know it's just Jennie now ;) but I queried Leslie earlier in the summer and would like to query Jennie with same project now that Jennie is back open to queries. Website doesn't give me any clues.

5/12/22- Finally got a personal rejection. Sad for me but at least she finally responded. />: I give her extra points for that professionalism.
It's so hard to wait and then never hear anything. The frustrating part is she requested an exclusive. so I gave her one. 6 months of momentum lost. No more exclusives. It's just not worth the lost time. Good luck out there!
