I was bummed to get a form rejection from JF simply b/c I had attended her query writing course, and had hoped for a little more feedback, but it is what it is ¯_(?)_/¯

Rejection 3/1/22
I love how prompt Bookends Lit is...even if it's a rejection haha At least I know! I've been waiting to query Ms. Faust for a while, but my project wasn't the right fit.

Thank you so much for querying BookEnds and for giving me the opportunity to review TITLE. I did read your letter and am going to pass on looking at further material.
I'm sorry I don't have better news. I am lucky to have a full and active client list and for that reason, I've become very particular about taking on new clients. This is by no means a criticism of your work. It's quite possible you'll find someone else who feels differently. I encourage you to keep querying and even consider other BookEnds agents for your work.
I wish you all the best in your search for representation and thank you again for giving BookEnds the opportunity.

Queried 11/15
Full request 11/15
Personal and polite rejection 2/25
While I was bummed, I knew this was coming. Made me happy to see she put the time in to hand write the rejection. I’ve already queried my second book to her now, so fingers crossed!

Super fast same-day rejection, even if it was a form letter. It's very helpful not to be stuck in limbo.

must be a form letter response because it looks just like my response and took about the same amount of time. Makes you wonder how much of the submission was read.

Dear Anthony,

Thank you so much for querying BookEnds and for giving me the opportunity to review >> Book Title <<. I did read your letter and am going to pass on looking at further material.

I'm sorry I don't have better news. I am lucky to have a full and active client list and for that reason, I've become very particular about taking on new clients. This is by no means a criticism of your work. It's quite possible you'll find someone else who feels differently. I encourage you to keep querying and even consider other BookEnds agents for your work.

I wish you all the best in your search for representation and thank you again for giving BookEnds the opportunity.

Best,

I am very grateful for the quick response and encouraging words from Jessica Faust, despite her declining my book query. Despite being a very busy agent, she set expectations to respond and delivered. Amazing.
