Barbara gave me incredible feedback and admitted she was on the fence about the MS. She wrote that if I decided to revise and didn't get an offer in the meantime, she'd look at it again. I will say this, her reading was precise and her feedback specific and on point. I would absolutely work with this agent, FYI. She's clearly invested when she reads something. She's all pro.

Depressing rejection on a partial request after 4 days.

And with this, I bow out. It's been 23 years. 8 books. I've tried. I've failed. I don't know what else to do. Alas, I am not one of the lucky ones.

Very quick, gracious and helpful rejection. Based on her suggestions, I have re-written my beginning and it already feels stronger.

Not sure if this is form or personalized? "Thank you for sharing the opening chapters with me. Despite some good moments in this original story, I’m sorry but this is going to be a pass for me. I wish you much success with your work."

I'm confused. Are people emailing her? Her website says "If you are interested in my representing your work please mail me a query letter. Please do not query me by email or fax, I will not respond to either."

EQ 4/29/21
ER 4/29/21 (within the hour--fastest response I've ever gotten!)
She requested the synopsis and first 3 chapters, since the initial submission was only the query, per her guidelines.
ER 5/3/21 personalized rejection.
