@chbrewer, she also got my title wrong, and it is clear she didn't even read the sample. I also browsed her twitter page, and she has pics of herself holding a bottle of Jack Daniels, and using swear words. To each their own, but my opinion is she is not very classy or professional.

Very kind form rejection.

"I think you have an intriguing concept, but I’m afraid that the first chapter just didn’t pull me in as much as I had hoped. Of course this is only one response, and tastes vary widely among agents. Thanks again for the look, and please do think of me again in the future."

Received a nicely written form letter declining "THE NAME OF THE ROSE" for representation. Funny mistake, it's not my novel and it is an acclaimed world-wide success. I used it in the body of my query letter for comparison. Interesting and makes one wonder if she read anything other than my query letter. Oh well, one more down.

This one stung :( I e-mailed back and forth with her about another project last year and she was great. Best of luck to the rest of you!
