Very helpful personalized rejection. She took the time to comment on pros and cons . Her comments are very helpful. I Tweeted her a thank you for taking the time to comment. I don't think agents bother to comment unless they see potential in an author's writing. She replied to my Tweet within minutes. In part, her reply read, "I do want to encourage you and hope you’ll use my notes to study and find examples of how other writers do the things I bring up." I think she's a fine agent and that it is well worth building a relationship with her.

Following the rejection from Tia Mele on Dec 5, I received a full request from Gina/her assistant on Jan 4/20 (it was Gina I originally queried)

A polite rejection from Tia Mele (Jr Agent/Assistant) - I appreciate the honest feedback!

Thank you for submitting XX to Talcott Notch. Unfortunately, we are going to pass on this project. The story sounds interesting with a strong hook. However, we found the sample pages didn't draw us in as much as we hoped, and that is why we ultimately decided to pass. We wish you the best of luck in finding representation in the future.

@Stargrave - I figured it was likely a form of some sort, but it was at least more specific than some rejections! And not to worry, I didn't interpret your comment as mean :)

@billybuttercup: That's not feedback, that's a form. (Not trying to be mean, just telling you not to take it too seriously or change your story because of it)

FYI- She posted this on Twitter today.
I will be closing to new, unsolicited queries from 12/6 - 1/13. Any query or submission already in process will receive a reply, but unsolicited queries received during the period will not.

Gina brought some great things to the table, and I think she'd do a great job, but I ultimately ended up accepting my first offer with a different agent. 11/26/19

Gina responded with email today with kind rejection. So rejected twice for the same query...ouch!
