ER: 25 days after EQ - Very positive, personalized email which made we wonder if she sat on the query for a while thinking. That was good in my opinion. I'd rather an agent take their time and not request a full, instead of get an author's hope up with something they weren't ready to invested in. I was very thankful for the email. It's one of those rejection keepers. :D

The rejection email seemed personalized and was both polite & encouraging. She seems lovely!

Form rejection on full request from Sun vs Snow. I have to say getting a form rejection on this particular full request surprised me since she requested off the query and first page from the contest. I sort of expected a line or two of personalization, stating she had read the pages. But, shrugging it off and moving on.

update - i received an email today from her assistant, apologizing for the form rejection. She said it was a mix-up in their inbox and that she was sending my email onto Ms. Burby. She asked me to ignore the rejection and wait for Ms. Burby's reply.

Thank you so much for thinking of Nelson Literary Agency for your query. I wish we could offer a more personalized response but on average, we receive 500+ email query letters a week. Do know that every query letter and sample are read and even though your project is not right for us, it might be right for another agent so don’t give up! I’m also sorry I have no agent recommendations to offer.

Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.

Hadn't heard from her since her move to Nelson so I emailed asking if my partial was still under consideration and she said mine was one of a very few that she didn't have the time to get to before she left and hopes to have an answer for me soon.
