Received a full request immediately followed by a rejection of the full within the same minute, before I could even send the full. Full request was sent in error.

Dear ---,

Thank you so much for sharing STORY. I'm sorry, but your project doesn't sound like a great fit for me.

Thank you for considering me and best of luck finding the perfect partner for your story!

A super sweet note that I hope isn't form: No reflection on the quality of your writing or the story, however, I am going to pass. I didn't quite connect with the voice. But I am confident someone will and I wish you all the best finding that someone.

Originally requested by Kaitlyn Johnson during #PitDark 21 MAY 2020
PR: 22 JUNE 2020
Full R: 04 JULY 2020
30 AUG 2020: Kaitlyn passed over to Sharon as she has expressed interest in it.
22 SEP 2020: Sharon passed, liked to the writing and the story, but not sure how to make it stand out in the market. Invited to submit future works.

Fun Fact: 2 other Belcastro agents requested same manuscript during #PitDark and both gave form rejections. I sent out one #PitDark Tweet and managed to be rejected by the entire agency. ;)

Are you able to resubmit to another agent if one passes? I don’t see on the website if this is ok or not
