@queryingagain, I didn't realize the "don't submit to two agents here" rule, and submitted to Ms. Rennert a few weeks after receiving a rejection from Caryn Wiseman. Ms. Rennert mentioned that they are very collaborative and she knew I had already queryed her colleague, but that if I made significant revisions, she would like to review my work in six months. Very nice and I felt like an idiot for not knowing that policy!

Judging by how fast Ms. Rennert passes on these works, I'm not sure if she actually shares the queries with her colleagues, and there could be another agent at the agency that likes the MS... thoughts?

I submitted at three o'clock and she got back to me the next morning with a personalized rejection letter explaining that she thought I was incredibly talented, just not a good fit for her. She said she thought I should continue looking for publication. After that, she sent the standard rejection form. It was encouraging to me to know that she thought my manuscript had a chance. Ms. Rennert was incredibly respectful and encouraging. I would recommend submitting to her.
