Professional response. I prefer short rejections...would love a short acceptance!

We're sorry, but your project is not a fit for our agency at this time, so we will have to pass. Thank you for considering us and best of luck with your future queries.

Sent query at 10:00 pm at night, had a rejection when I woke up in the morning. No way she could have read even the query, and it was one of the genres she said she really wanted to see. Not impressed.

I queried Sandy Harding at Spencerhill and she was the nicest agent I have communicated with so far in the process. Very kind and complimentary, no form letters.

FGeiger, Sandy Harding has her profile here on QT. Her name is under Nalini's. Unless you meant to query Karen.

Her page says she represents Women's Fiction, not sure why it's not a genre on her page here.
