"Thanks so much for sending along the sample pages of [title]. I’m sorry to say, though, that I just wasn’t as completely drawn in by the material as much as I had hoped. What with my reservations, I’d better bow out. Thanks so much for contacting me, though! I really appreciate it and wish you the best of luck."

To sierrayang - when I queried her before, the same thing happened to me. I'm currently waiting on a new MS query, 51 days thus far, lots of people before and after and around me. She definitely has a maybe pile. Try to keep the faith and good luck!

(as of 9/26/22) Noticing a lot of people have gotten responses for queries sent before and after mine.... not sure if I'm in a maybe pile or if I've been overlooked/CNR'd.

Nice rejection 9/13/22 I appreciate her kind response. "good to hear from you. It sounds like a highly compelling story but I've been finding memoir very challenging to place at the moment and I just don't think I'd be the best advocate for it at this point in time. Thank you for reaching out though! I really appreciate it and I wish you the best of luck."

Less than twelve hours to reject. "Thanks for sending along the opening pages. I’m sorry to say they didn’t draw me in as much as I had hoped and I suspect I wouldn’t be the best advocate. Thanks for the opportunity, though, and best of luck. Best, Andrea"

Not sure if this is a form letter or "helpful."

Rejection 9/4/22 polite form letter sprinkled with some specifics along the lines of: good query but pages not so much. I get this a lot, lol. At least I can write a query letter.
