"Thank you for thinking of us with [X]. I'm so tempted but the project does not look like a fit for me at this time. I'm feeling a pretty YA vibe here and I'm thinking that it might be better with a YA agent..."

Her rejection was fantastic because it really made me realize I was querying the wrong people and, since I'm currently writing a magical realist historical YA then YA is where I seem to be writing at the moment. Also, "so tempted" is the nicest rejection yet.

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.

Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries.

Impressed with her response time.

EDIT: She's actually taking the time to ask questions AS she reads the book, which no agent has done! She asks really intelligent and spot on questions, which is awesome.

EDIT 2- ultimately rejected, which was a bummer given how enthused she seemed while reading it. Did suggest some changes and to resubmit, but have since had interest elsewhere.

Followed up twice on a full, no responses. Let the ghosting begin!

Still have my fingers crossed, but am not optimistic.

Rejected; good luck everyone.

Jill is an amazing agent with a wealth of experience and knowledge. Her enthusiasm for my book and her warm, responsive communication style won me over immediately. She put me at ease right away during her offer call and came with an organized, ambitious marketing plan for my project already in place. I had two offers and it was a difficult decision, but ultimately Jill’s vision for my writing career meshed so perfectly with my own that I trusted my gut. She is “the one.”
