Adult Suspense Novel with amateur sleuthing, haunted mansion, and plus sized protagonist themes

"Thank you for the opportunity to consider your work, but I am sorry to say that I do not think this material would be right for me, and therefore I would not make your most effective advocate. Please remember this is just one agent’s opinion, and there may well be other agents who feel differently.

I apologize for the form reply & batched email, but the volume of queries I receive means that individual replies are impossible. This is the only way to ensure that every query gets a timely evaluation and response, and I appreciate your understanding.

Thank you for thinking of me, and best of luck to you."

Form batch rejection, Nov. 22 any response at all, these days, is welcome. It seems that so many agents just aren't replying.

This agent sent me the absolute best rejection I’ve ever seen. She connected too deeply with my neurodiverse character on a personal level that made her feel she couldn’t represent the story as she wants to feel an escape when she’s reading. She also said she understands why I have an offer of publication. Just a gem of a response. I’m blown away.
