72K Contemporary Romance. Form rejection after a little over 14 weeks. Didn't find the story engrossing and her list is full so she's picky about submissions. My 3rd rejection received today, must be Rejection Friday.

Like with many who queried her, got the form letter within an hour. Basic, typical form letter.

"Thank you for querying me and giving me the opportunity to consider _____. 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 his or her 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.

Sincerely,

Jessica Alvarez"

Queried her on 8/30 with 84K contemporary inspirational romance. Received full request within an hour, no joke. Contacted her 9/1 with news of an offer from another agent; she read the MS quickly and sent me a very gracious rejection 9/2, saying it was good, but she wasn't pulled in enough to represent it enthusiastically. I appreciate her promptness and her honesty. She seems like she'd be great to work with.

Requested my full MS back in June. Seemed very kind and efficient. Haven't heard back, but I am sure she may be busy, since she seems to have a good reputation, and we're all querying!

Will wait a few weeks and then nudge her.

I queried her when she liked my #pitmad tweet, and she's been especially kind and responsive since. I nudged her because I got an offer of representation, and she promised to read quickly, which she did. It was a pass, but so efficient and with thoughtful feedback. I'll bet she's great to work with.

messaged me back in about half an hour, sounds like quirky fiction may not be what she is interested in at this time.
