"Thank you for the query [name]. But this is not right for me. I wish you all the best. Bill Contardi" ... I thought this was a nice form reject. I appreciated that he used my name. :)

This was for an MG fantasy (76k) and I believe I'd read somewhere recently he didn't want any more fantasy... so I knew it was a long shot, but worth a try.

"..not right for me"
Quick, which is appreciated. Kind of like ripping off a Band-Aid. Less painful when it isn't drawn out...I guess...

Haven't heard anything yet, which confuses me, because it looks like most people hear back in a day or two. I guess I just have to wait.

I am worried that I have gotten caught in a spam filter, because it's been over a month and I still haven't heard anything.
