May be strange to say this about someone who read my ms and rejected it, but she's a first class individual, willing to answer a question about it even though I know that's not supposed to happen.

Form rejection after 6 days (which is nice).

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 be well.

Sincerely,
The Lark Group
