Kind rejection. Assistant Alexandra said they'd reviewed my work and weren't connecting wholeheartedly, despite its "many charms." I appreciated that, and the quick response. Update: 1/17/18 (as per @m_pepper it looks like this was a form rejection)

Same form note from Alexandra as Eliza_f: "I’ve reviewed your work with Rebecca and I’m sorry to say that we weren’t connecting wholeheartedly with your writing, despite its many charms, so we should step aside. We truly appreciate the look, though, and we wish you nothing but the best of luck with your future endeavors."

little tip: even if they follow you on Twitter doesn't mean they're interested!

Thanks so much for reaching out. Rebecca isn’t quite the best match for your work, but do feel free to try someone else at Writers House if you’d like. Wishing you all the best as you move forward with your search for representation. We hope to see your work on shelves one day.

All best,

Writers House, LLC
