5/26 Form rejection. Bonehead. Despite my Excel file and doublechecking, I stupidly queried her while I had a query out with another agent in the same agency. Honest mistake...but stupid.

Same form rejection as others listed below.

Thank you so much for contacting me about representation. Unfortunately, I don’t think your book would be quite right for my list at this time. Publishing is very subjective, of course, and I’m sure another agent will feel differently. Thank you for thinking of Writers House. I wish you all the best of luck with this project.

Best wishes,
