Submitted psych thriller on 5/20/22 - rejection 6/20/22
Stated "I'm being extremely selective with genre fiction these days as it's becoming more and more difficult to stand out in a crowded suspense market."
Labeled as helpful feedback as this may be a reason I am getting rejected from other agents as well.

Kind pass: I don't think she really connected to the story or understood it. Lots of comments that clash with other feedback I've received, but offered to look at it if I decided to make any of the changes she's interested in seeing.

Submitted form query 2/2/2022
Request for full proposal & sample chapters 2/3/2022
no further response as of yet

Never heard another thing from her and no response to my follow up. She asked for materials within a day of my query. You'd think she could at least let me know she wouldn't move forward. How hard is that?

Update 4/28/2022 Out of the blue she let me know after being considered by the firm, they are passing. So at least she did not ghost me, but there was no communication from the initial interest almost 3 months ago so I had assumed a pass.

Thank you for thinking of me with TITLE but the project does not look like a fit for me at this time. I'm being extremely selective with fiction these days and this is a very subjective decision on my part. So I'm sure another agent or editor will feel differently.
