I sent my query on October 31st and got a request for a full manuscript (YA High Fantasy) on November 1st.
Approximately, how long could it take to get a response back, after having submitted the full manuscript?

"Thank you for your query and for your interest in The Knight Agency. Unfortunately, after reviewing your material, I have determined that it's not quite the right fit for me, and so I'm going to pass. As you know, much of this business is based on personal taste, so I wish you all the best finding the right representation... Thank you again for the chance to take a look."

Obviously not the ideal result but very speedy and polite.

Form rejection, impersonalised, as follows:

'Thank you so much for allowing The Knight Agency to consider your material. Unfortunately, after carefully reviewing your query, we’ve determined that this particular project isn’t the right fit for us at this time. As I’m sure you know, the publishing industry changes swiftly now, as do readers’ tastes and trends. As a result, our own agents’ needs shift and change, as well; therefore, we would like to encourage you to consider querying us with future projects as you may deem appropriate.

Again, thank you very much for allowing us this chance to consider your material, and we wish you all the best in your publishing endeavors.


At least it was quick!
