EQ: 11/26/18
PR: 12/5/18 - first 5 chapters; mystery 120k
ER: 12/12/18 - Very positive and complimentary

“Thanks so much for the opportunity to read the first five chapters of [ BOOK NAME]. There is much that is good here, and you are clearly a talented writer, but I'm sorry to say I didn't fall in love. So I'm going to thank you for the opportunity and step aside to make room for another agent.“

"Thank you for querying The Lark Group about your book project. We have evaluated your query and regrettably, your project is not a right fit for our agency. We must be highly selective about the new projects we pursue.
Thank you again for thinking of us. Keep your chin up and keep swinging!"

Requested the first 5 chapters after initial query. Personalized rejection, complimenting writing talent but didn't fall in love with it. Very nice email.
