Although it wasn't too personalized, at least she used my name and was quick about it. :)


Dear XXX,

Thank you so much for thinking of me, but this does not sound like a fit for my list at this time.

Thanks again for your query, and I wish you the best of luck with your book.

Best, Shannon

Shannon Hassan was wonderful. While she rejected the manuscript in the end, she had extremely helpful comments, which I used to do another major edit on the ms. I came very close to getting representation, it seems. She told me that my writing is "terrific," that she liked the voice, that the characters felt "authentic," and she liked the premise and setting. Those comments felt great! And her criticisms were right on. I am certain that if she had agreed to represent me, she would have been a fantastic agent to work with.
