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

Congrats melaniehoo! Go ahead and mark the query to Rebecca as a rejection, but then add a new query to Andrea as a referral. Good luck.

I queried Rebecca on 5/24, then received a partial request from Andrea Morrison on 5/31. Yay! But how do I mark that in my query list since I didn't actually query Andrea?

Middle-grade historical fiction. Very pleasant to correspond with. I assume I got a form rejection, but it was personalized enough to take the sting out.

Thank you so much for your query. While we found your concept to be engaging, we don’t feel that your work is right for us at this time. Due to a very full client list, we need to be especially selective about pursuing new projects.

Agents’ tastes vary—this is a subjective business, and someone else may have an extremely different approach that better fits your needs, and that is better suited to you and your writing. Thank you again for thinking of us, and we wish you the best of luck in finding representation.

All best,

Andrea Morrison
Assistant to Rebecca Sherman and Geri Thoma
