Does anyone know if her rejection letters are form? Upon request I sent her my full manuscript and heard back from her last week. Her response was very complimentary to the writing but I wasn't sure if that's sincere or relayed in all rejections.

I'm sorry, LissaC. I know how disappointing this process can be. It's great that you piqued her interest, at least. Hang in there! Your agent is out there somewhere.

Really disappointed with this one.
Had a partial request 8/22/16 that I sent straightaway. She responded saying she received it.
Didn't hear anything until today 1/26/17. A rejection, but with some feedback. However, I have a feeling my submission wasn't read. I feel like the feedback was on my query, which is helpful, but I'm just very disappointed because I think this book would be right up her alley.

That blog post was interesting. It was nice to have some insight into her process. However, I have to say, there have been multiple times when I have nudged an agent about a full and they've replied right away with a rejection, which makes me think some people read your MS, decide they're not interested, and then forget to tell you. Maybe she's not one of those people but it happens quite a bit, so sometimes you have to speak up to get a response

Jennifer recently posted this helpful blog about her response times, and following up. For those of you who have fulls or partials out with her, it's worth reading:

She also explains why she sometimes responds at odd times.
