"Thanks so much for letting me take a look at your materials, and for accepting a brief response. As I’m sure you’ll understand, the volume of submissions I receive makes it impossible to correspond with everyone personally.



Unfortunately, I wasn’t drawn in to the story as I want to be to pursue a project further. I wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher for your work, and I thank you, once again, for the opportunity to consider it.



Sincerely,



Sharon Pelletier"

EQ: Historical romance 82K, sent 1/8/21
CNR/Rejection: No response from Sharon, but I got an email from Ann Leslie Tuttle informing me Sharon had forwarded it to her. (I took a risk here because Sharon isn't actively looking for historical romance but does have a client who writes in that genre.) 1/14/21

Welp, been obsessing over Data Explorer again, and I was wondering how many of the green smileys with no paper clips are because people didn't record sending their submissions after getting a full request, or if people really aren't sending manuscripts after they get a request... I'm so excited when I get a full request that I always send right away!
