Received the form rejection yesterday on a query sent in early August. Changed her from a "No Response" to a rejection. But I appreciated the rejection letter and why she sent it.

Same very polite form letter as Terrie. Received it today on a query from late March. YA contemp.

I just received an form reject today for a query sent April 29: I regret the volume of email requires I use a less personal reply but I want to avoid "no response means no" so a form letter it is. Sadly, this project is a pass for me. I pass on many interesting (and publishable!) projects due to time constraints (much like you choose only one or two books at a bookstore, even though there are a lot of good ones.) Please do not read any more into this decision than "not the best fit for me."

I queried my YA novel in March and just got a response, with a request for a full today (9/27). I already have representation, but I just wanted to mention here that she apologized for the delay and said she was extremely backlogged due to her move. Hope that is helpful for folks who are still waiting on a response.

Thank you for thinking of me for xxx. This sounds intriguing,
but I'm afraid it doesn't fit my nonfiction list needs at this time. I
might think about who the audience is for the book--adopted children?
Or their parents?

I queried at the end of April for YA. I know others who queried around same time for YA and also have not heard. I think with her recent move to FinePrint and then Colleen's subsequent move, the timeframe is probably going to be a bit longer.

I still haven't heard but I assume with Colleen Lindsay leaving and her clients beng reassigned to other Fine Print agents, they're all busy with that right now on top of current clients. I would imagine our queries will backed up longer than normal for a bit.

I submitted to a different agent at the same agency and received a partial request the next day.

Please send the first chapter.

My instinct is that it would work better as either MG or adult, but hard for YA. Who do you see as the audience for this book?

Nice, personal rejection letter.
Dear Ms. Fender:

Thank you for thinking of me for THE FLOWER GIRL AND THE RING BEAR. This is fun and clever, but I'm afraid it's not right for my limited picture book list. It's an extremely tough picture book market right now.

Good luck finding the right agent for your work!

All best wishes,
