3/19 request for full MS, "Sorry about the delay in getting back to you. If the book is still available, I'd be interested in taking a closer look. Could you please send me novel as a Word attachment, with REQUESTED MATERIAL in the subject line?"
3/23 rejection with 3 paragraphs of feedback, some of which is consistent with previous critique readers, but also leads me to believe Mr. Carr did not read past my first chapter (which is okay! Our job as writers is to keep the reader turning pages.) For what it's worth, my story features an innkeeper in the early pages, and apparently Mr. Carr was once an innkeeper, and I think he really grabbed onto this since 2 of his 3 paragraphs were about the minutiae of innkeeping. LOL.

Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, it's not quite what I'm looking for at this time, so I will have to pass. Best wishes in your search for representation.
