Our offices close on Friday & I will be cleaning out any queries from which I made requests but never received material. Would love to have you re-query if that's the case.

Form rejection like others have posted below.

Thank you so much for querying BookEnds and for giving me the opportunity to review ______. After reading your letter I'm afraid I just wasn't hooked enough to want to ask for more.

As an agent with an established list, I'm very selective about requesting more material at this time. For that reason, I would strongly suggest you take a second look at some of the other agents at BookEnds in your search for the right fit.

Publishing is a long game, keep writing and persevering. I wish you nothing but the greatest success.

Sincerely,

Jessica Faust, President
