“We’ve read your material with interest, but we have ultimately decided to pass on this project.

You are a talented storyteller. That said, we're afraid we don’t think we could sell the manuscript as it now stands. We don’t think that it’s ready to shop, at least not for us.

There is a level of craft that is missing here. You're about 75 percent there. Which far exceeds most of the material we see. But publishers are looking for work that is 95 percent there. So we can only take on projects that are 90 percent, and help take them to that 95 percent level.

What this boils down to is an attention to detail in terms of point of view, tone, dialogue, setting, and sentence quality. This is that final polish, polish, polish that makes all the difference.

We wish we had better news for you. We have a full complement of writers right now, so we are only taking on projects that require little to no revision.

Again, you are a talented writer, and as you work on your craft and polish, polish, polish you are bound to succeed.

Thank you again for your submission and we wish you the best of luck in finding representation in the future.”

Had originally closed this as a CNR on 10/13/18
Received a surprise partial request in my inbox today, 208 days after my initial query. Will send through, but that's a heckuva backlog? Partial request was from an assistant.

Update: It's been 119 days since the partial request, and that was with a nudge about 30 days after that said my MS was next on the pile. I'm closing this one out as CNR. 7/1/19

ER: 4/9 - Assistant Tianna Mignogna replied. Said agency (TN) read with interest and the premise was interesting, but they didn't feel they were the right agency. Did provide notes on writing for first 10 pages.

I love when I get rejected twice by the same agency - I didn't submit again, but I got 2 rejection from Munier, via Tianna.
Just to make sure... we really, really, don't want it.

Uh, ok.

This Tianna seems to be an intern. Most agents insist they don’t use interns to read manuscripts.

I think Tianna is all alone. One thing I’ve noticed is that when the agent works in an agency with other agents he/she always uses the singular, “ I didn’t feel it was a fit for me.” But when it’s a one man show the agent always uses first person plural. “We don’t feel this project is right for us.”

A personalized rejection! I'm actually kind of stoked, especially since this is a first from this agent/agency for me. Normally I CNR these things, but this time I got great feedback.

Literary mystery/crime

This was an interesting one - seemed like it was personalized, with feedback about the sample (and why it didn't work). I'll have to chew on that one for awhile. Also said they were only taking stuff on that needed next to no revision.
... the times we live in. No development of a book.
