I just received a request for a full today. I have four agents that requested this manuscript, so I'm hoping to receive offers before the month is out. Two of them were dream agents. I submitted my query to DB on June 20th, so I thought this was a pretty quick turnaround. She seems sweet and I love what I read. Also, I have loved Nelson Literary for years.

Super nice reject. Maybe a form? It was definitely encouraging. :)
“Thank you so much for thinking of me for your project! I found your query and sample pages well-written with a strong concept. I have ultimately decided to step aside, but I think another agent is going to be intrigued enough to ask for the manuscript.”

I really appreciate the fast turnaround! Not sure if it was a form or not -- seemed complimentary and sweet, but there was no specific feedback, just that she didn't get that "must have" feeling.
