Personalized Rejection: 5/4. Said she wasn't the right agent to market this book, but if I ever query any other projects to please send her way! The loveliest rejection ever.

Personalized rejection. She said that my writing was fairly telling-heavy and so not to her personal taste. She did say what had drawn her to my writing which was very nice and helpful.

Personalized rejection. She "couldn't get behind" a certain thing which basically makes my ms what it is! She said that makes her not the right agent for this and I agree. I just wish she would have taken less than 6 months to read 50 pages...

Rejected a day after I submitted the query. Sent a lovely rejection note; the nicest one I've received to date.

Form rejection. A tad disappointed because I worked so hard on personalizing my query, but I know rejections aren't personal. She seems lovely though.
