Closing this one, no reply to 12 week enquiry about status, shame.

Requested full manuscript very quickly after querying, but then nothing, and didn't respond to a 12-week nudge. Marking closed.

***UPDATE: Tia reached out to me and said that the ms is still under consideration, Gina is just busy. (That was nice.) :) Reopening.

Queried: 3/28/2019
Form Rejection: 4/26/2019

Slightly same as Ford's. Yes, it is tweaked. The reasons are very specific, though, I do believe. As follows:

Dear William Calvert White JR,

Thank you for your query regarding your book "TITLE". I read your letter with interest and certainly thought there was a great deal to recommend the project. Ultimately, though, I'm afraid I have to pass. The work sounded intriguing, but I felt it seemed a bit outside our wheelhouse and so, I wouldn't be the best-suited agent for it. This is no reflection on the quality or potential of the book.

I appreciate you thinking of me with your work, and sincerely wish you every success with this, and all of your writing endeavors.


Gina Panettieri
p.p. Janel Decena

Note the P.P. probably an intern, but refreshing in the way it was presented, nonetheless. Am pleased with this one.

I appreciate the speed! Friendly rejection from Gina; I think it's just a mildly-tweaked form?

"Thank you for your query and for the sample of your novel. I read the materials with interest, and certainly felt the writing was promising, but I'm afraid ultimately I have to pass.
While there is a great deal to recommend the book, I've found that the plot didn't feel as fresh as I would have wanted to compete in a very crowded market.
I'm sorry I can't be of service. I do appreciate you thinking of us and I wish you every success with this book and with all of your writing endeavors."

I have not heard back from anyone, so I assume it's a pass.

Someone else from the agency wrote the rejection, but it was a very nice personalized rejection in that they wrote why they didn't want to see more!

I got a nice, encouraging rejection from Tia Mele, which maybe is a nickname for the same assistant. Of course we would all rather get requests but getting a custom rejection is still really comforting and stands out amidst the other agents who send forms or nothing but silence. A class act, this one.

Eq 2/10/19 to Gina
Er 2/28/19 was answered by her assistant, Tianna Mignogna. Received some helpful feedback. Happy to receive real constructive criticism. Most rejection letters are form letters saying the same to everyone.

Just checked and I accidentally sent two query letters to this agent so I guess I'm just writing this to remember so I don't send another one. Also I don't expect to hear back. As of 2/15/2019 I got a rejection response.
