I appreciate her quick response and that the form rejection letter felt personal and not like a form letter. I also appreciate the vast amount of time and effort that goes into the Youtube videos she co-hosts with another agent at Bookends. I've learned tons from watching them!

Received a same day rejection to my query. Women's fiction, Suspense. She was very nice and encouraging, however. I can always appreciate that.

6/16 - Queried 86K mystery. Responded within hours with a very polite form rejection letter that said, in part: "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."
I would MUCH rather receive a reply like hers than no reply at all. Appreciate her professionalism.

Responded within 24hrs. Nice rejection letter. After some introspection and rereading the letter, I realized I was querying under the wrong genre. I was trying to query what genre I wanted to be in rather than what my book was really reflecting. Lesson #1: know your genre.
