Requested 22 hours after I sent the email. Very grateful for the opportunity!

Rejection Feb 8th: Wasn't invested in the characters and needed more voice. Oh well, having closure is always good and I still appreciated her interest. She seems like a great agent. Moving on!

This one really hurt! She sent the nicest personalized rejection letter. Would have loved to work with her!

Closed this out a while ago, but now just got a form rejection. It came in as a BCC so obviously sent out as a mass rejection. I've never seen a rejection come in as a BCC and I'm rather put off by her use of it.

QT stats suggest she responds within 13 days if she's interested, so I'm going to go ahead and close this one. Best of luck to everyone still being considered!
