Not even a full 24 hours. If I can say "no" to a movie within 60 seconds after reading a 3-sentence summary because I know what I like and don't like, I guess I can appreciate this level of efficiency. *sigh* Still stings a little. :(

Personalized rejection with detailed feedback: July 19, 2021

Brent gave me not one but TWO rounds of extremely detailed feedback on my book and I cannot thank him enough. The second draft is definitely a much better version than the first. While it wasn't a match for us, I trust in his taste and have a strong sense that he has the ability to pick out a truly awesome book from others. I highly recommend querying him and if you get represented by Brent, you are very lucky, congrats!

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 :(
