Form rejection (a very nice form rejection with most likely no bearing on reality) for my nonfiction submission @ 8 days. Jury's out on the fiction sub.

EQ= April
PR=May 50 pages
FR= July full manuscript
August 22= kind message saying she has not read the work yet and is still under review and consideration.
September 2022= nudged with offer of representation from another agent
OCT 22= is still reading and will meet my deadline
Could not schedule a call with me because she was busy and there was high interest from other agents.


She is a big agent, incredibly intelligent with an incredible client list, I doubt she would pick me but I would be mad lucky if she does!

Thanks so much for letting me consider your query, which I read with interest. Unfortunately, however, I will not be offering representation for the title at this time. Though it seems like it will be a great read, the book is not a great fit for my list. I didn’t connect with the writing in the sample, and thus I simply wouldn't be the best advocate for the manuscript. As you can imagine, this is an incredibly subjective business, and I wish you all the best in finding an agent who feels passionately about the project, and eventually an editorial home for the book.
