Thanks so much for letting me take a look at your materials, and please forgive me for responding briefly. The volume of submissions I receive, however, makes it impossible to correspond with everyone personally.
Unfortunately, the project you describe isn’t a fit for my list at this time. 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.

Queried 12/12 for 104,000 word humorous/offbeat novel. Got simple email response 12/13 -- "Not right for my list at this time." No reason stated. But prompt response, which is nice.

FrannieFretnot, thanks! And that is awesome! She's had mine about that long, so I'll probably hear soon (I hope!.) I have two friends rep'd by her and love her. Definitely top of my list of dream agents.

nclar4- yes, it was. She requested the full ms within a day of my query and then took only about a month with it (and apologized for the "delay," ha!)

FrannieFretnot, was your rejection from Sharon from requested material? And I agree. She's been fantastic!

In my experience querying 50 agents, Sharon was one of the quickest and by far the most thoughtfully considered rejection I received. Plus, she's great on Twitter. I'll bet she's great to work with.
