Nice short letter -- thanks, but not for her. I don't know about the rest of you, but I am getting tired of the current trend of syrupy rejection letters -- poorly written, repetitive, state the obvious (some even peddle third party services). Glad Alice doesn't write these.

She responded in 50 minutes, a rejection but at least she makes a quick decision.

Bam - less than 60 minutes. She had requested before, but not this time (thanks for trying me again, not for me...)

Points for responding within less than 30 minutes to my query, even if it was a rejection. Got the same, "Thanks, but this doesn't sound right for me" that others have reported.

ER: 1/14/19 (one hour later) “Thank you, but this doesn’t sound right for me.”

Genre: Literary/Dark. 84K.

Based on what I’ve read and her client list, Ms. Martell seems especially geared toward high-power crime/mystery work.

What a nice agent. I got such a lovely rejection letter (after requesting a partial) with a request to see more of my writing.
