Form Query: 7/6/20
Confirmation email: 7/6/20
ER: 7/6/20

60 K Motorcycle Club Romance, first in series.

The rejection was most likely form, but very kind:

I'm afraid, though, that after reading your letter, I just didn't feel strongly enough to ask for more, and I firmly believe every writer needs an agent who is passionate about their work. Much of this boils down to personal preference, so please bear in mind that what isn't right for me might be right for another agent. I encourage you to continue querying and working on your next book.

I wish you the best of luck and much success with your writing career. And, most importantly, I hope you stay safe and healthy!

Received a kind email just a few hours after submitting my query. Wasn’t very specific, just said didn’t care for my letter, but was very kind.

Submitted online form 5/28/2020
Rejected 5/29/2020
She didn't drawn enough to the submission to be passionate about it. I think this is a form letter because there was nothing particular to my book in it. However, it's a kind rejection.

This agency is fast, but not unkind or completely impersonal in their rejections.
