Thank you for your query. Dan Lazar asked me to reply after he evaluated your submission.
We’re afraid your project does not seem right for our list, but thank you for thinking of Dan, and best of luck in your search for representation.

I get that he is training his assistant but they need to rewrite her letter. The rejection started with a sentence that made me think I was getting a req for a full or partial. Then bam, rejection. It should be more clear from the start.

Very kind agent. Submitted Adult Fantasy Fiction 117,000 words on 9/16/20 and got a rejection the next day with recommendations of other agents to query so trying them now. Very kind thing to do, he seems to have good character if you end up getting him!

Previously got a request for a full manuscript of a YA 90,000 word novel from Dan (he prefers Dan) that ultimately got passed on but gave me hope to try him again this time.
