Full Request: 5/2/22
ER: 10/24/22

Very lovely, sweet, kind, complimentary personalized rejection from "The Clegg Agency." It was one of the best rejections ever, but ultimately, they just don't feel like they're the best agents for it despite them heaping so much praise over it and clearly connecting with it in many ways. I just wish the ER was from Bill himself though because I really have no idea who read my book, or if Bill himself ever actually read it (I doubt he did), but whoever they are, at least they seemed to truly understand, enjoy, and appreciate my work. They seem like a lovely team; I would definitely query The Clegg Agency again in the future.

LGBT Literary Fiction

Note: In case anyone is wondering, the full request was personalized, in that it sounded like it came from a real actual person, but from whom, no idea, as it was signed by "The Clegg Agency" which I assume was an intern or assistant.

was referred by a friend, sent query on the 26th and was asked for a full MS that day.

Rejection 6/8 by Bill himself. It was clear he'd read the whole book and was very kind and supportive. Assured me I would find an agent for the book and that it was a matter of fit. He seems to be generally nice, but the specificity and care he put into his rejection was very kind as this was my first submission ever.

4/13 sent query via general email (with referral); general email requested full (felt like a form request)
4/21 nudge with offer, no response
5/14 withdrew submission (accepted other offer)

From beginning to end never had any direct correspondence with Bill; have not received any response either to nudges or withdrawals so I dunno!
