On 10/2/15, I requeried Abby Saul with Venom's new query and sample pages. Today I've heard back from her--not a right fit. I'll try her with CR later this year.

I don’t know what’s more frustrating: getting a rejection, or being skipped and receiving no response at all.

Form rejection:
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. Please know that we wish you much success in all of your future writing and publishing endeavors.

I thought this was a personalized rejection until reading some of the responses here. It's somewhat personalized but really a form rejection. Abby does seem very kind and engaged, I would really love to work with her in the future!

Hi Danielle,

Thank you so much for the chance to read the first 5 chapters of DIVINEST OF DIVINES. I was eager to read, and there is much that is good here. You are clearly an extremely talented writer and this isa fascinating time period!

Unfortunately, I'm sorry to say that this is not the right fit for The Lark Group. I ultimately couldn't connect to this story in the way I need to to be the right advocate for it.

Thank you again for the read and please know that I wish you all the best in your publishing endeavors.

All best,
