Someone commented that Brent's rejection to their query was way too fast (a few minutes I think). This just shows that other factors come into play with agents scanning queries. I personally believe social trends, certain genres, etc. are en vogue and if you don't fit those, not even a perfect, amazing story or writing can make a difference. It sucks :(

@VictoriaAlexis my rejection came within 20 minutes ahah! I feel the pain, but I queried this agent specifically for their fast response. It does suck, though, as they represent exactly what I write ...
