KristenH My book is an epic and part of a series so the word count is fine. SFF, especially in adult, can have virtually any length and still be fine as long as the writing is solid. I'm not worried at all about finding it a home eventually, just have to find the right agent who likes working with bigger projects. I have a full out at another agency right now so fingers crossed.

CNR 1/24/19 (No word via nudges)

Hiho, I agree with her. Too long for SFF. See Writer's Digest for the word counts for genres. At least you got a response from her.

PR: 12/11/18

Rejected: 12/12/18 with polite and praising email saying she liked my main character and my world, but ultimately rejected my novel for its length. Told me to query her again if I decide to cut the book down.

I'm going to CNR this. Even though I only submitted today, this agent doesn't have much of a reputation for responding. If I hear something, great, I'll change it then. Not going to fret over the long shots.
