4 day form rejection on contemporary romance.

I'm sorry, but your project does not sound like a fit for me at this time, and so I will have to pass. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries.

@flowermiss53: I just had the exact same experience. I queried Laura Stone earlier in the month, got rejected. I queried Dawn Dowdle today and got back a email about how she had rejected this earlier in the month and there didn't seem to be any significant revisions. I thought the vibe was terse. I wonder how this mistake keeps happening.

I queried Laura Stone and received a form rejection last month. Then yesterday, I queried Dawn Dowdle and she wrote back within a few hours that she had already rejected this last month. It was a polite response, and didn't have an unkind vibe, but just to inform me. So, I'm thinking a pass from one is a pass from all. I never saw that on the webpage; otherwise, I wouldn't have queried Dawn. Just to let you all know ..
