8/29/19 Received a form letter rejection, but it's a really nice one!

"Thank you very much for sending me your work. I’m afraid, however, that I am going to have to pass up the opportunity to represent it. I am currently taking on new clients quite selectively, focusing exclusively on work I feel a deep connection to and have a strong vision for how to sell. I honestly don’t feel that I could represent your work with the requisite enthusiasm in this tough market, but trust another agent will feel differently. I wish you the very best in finding a good home for it.
Sincerely,
Katelyn Detweiler"

Received auto reply: For all inquiries regarding representation: if you have not done so already, please email your query letter with the first 50 pages of your manuscript or proposal attached as a Microsoft Word document (docx.) so that we may best evaluate your submission. Please note that we receive many queries, and we endeavor to respond to each as promptly as possible.

All other inquiries will be responded to separately.

Thank you for your patience!

For cbazay- I used this link to publisher's marketplace for the submissions guidelines, not sure if that's current though. https://www.publishersmarketplace.com/members/JillGrin/

Got back to me super quickly asking to attach the first 50 (so send those as an attachment if you're querying them!). Ended up rejecting saying while she liked the setup, writing, and characters, didn't have the "gut" feeling to rep it. Oh well.

Polite form stating she's very selective these days
