Respectful and motivational tone.

I genuinely appreciate any response and feedback, and to get one from Mr. Silberman as quickly as I did was uplifting. I appreciate the explanation I received, regarding my rejected query letter. It wasn't personalized - meaning I've received it before - but it was kind and motivational. I recommend querying Folio and Mr. Silberman.

Sept 2018: Sent my query for literary fiction, 98k. Heard back in a few months about his interest. He asked for a full. Over the next few months, we talked. He seemed excited but wanted a major re-write. So, I did. He seemed very kind and professional. Is very erudite. Recommended me books to read on the art of fiction, which I did.
April 2020: He got back in a few days of submitting my revised novel without any specific remarks. He said he "could not connect" and that "my prose has changed" (I disagree). It all feels very strange, almost surreal, how he concluded everything over the email. I accept his decision but the current messaging mode is very unusual.
Best of luck to everyone!
