Memoir 99K
Next-day rejection of EQ. Nicely-worded form email reply.

@bluedreamwoman I got that "on the fence" message too. I figured it was a form rejection, but just thought I'd check here. Looks like it is.

EQ (memoir) thru submittable Feb 2017
form R July 23, 2017

In the rejection, she said she had been "on the fence" ; still it read like a form rejection. Have others had form rejections from Diana Finch with the phrase "on the fence"? I am thinking it is probably her way of being encouraging while passing.

Thanks scottclyerly. But she is only closed to fiction queries. I've updated her genres to represent that.

EQ 10/24/16 Diplomatic Immunity, though she's closed.
CNR 12/15/16--no word from nudge. Will retry her when she's open next year, if I don't hear back from her.

Update: ER 1/2/17 on 5/10/17 (Passed, not the right agent.) I'll try her with something else later this year.
