In regards to hamster and jamarshauthor's comments below, I would like to add that in response to that same tweet that she sorted her QueryManager by women's fiction because wanted something new. I am not withdrawing my query just yet, but it's possible she's just sorting through different genres right now. We will have to see.

I saw the tweet jamarshauthor referenced and I have to say from personal experience, that just isn't true. Yes, this agent did respond to my query, six months after I queried her (full request after I marked it CNR), but she then ghosted me on the full after multiple nudges. It seems like she's a great agent in many ways but I also know from previous comments that I'm not the only person she's ghosted on a full.

So maybe mark your queries CNR instead of withdrawing, but take that tweet with a grain of salt.

FYI to those that haven't heard back-tweet today that she responds to all queries eventually (so reconsider withdrawing or CNR)

Personalized that it didn't fit her list and also expressed where we could tweak our query letter to be more effective. I appreciate the feedback!

Kind, personalized rejection April 26

“Thank you so much for allowing me to read your manuscript. I've taken a read of around 20% of the full manuscript, and while I felt the writing was of a very high standard, I wasn't as engaged by the story. But this, seriously, is a matter of taste rather than anything negative that I can pick out regarding your novel. It's one of those where if I picked up your novel in a bookstore, I would DNF simply because it wasn't for me, but I absolutely know other readers would adore it. So please don't be disheartened at all by this rejection, because I know you're going to get snapped up elsewhere (which I know doesn't feel great right now, but means you're still open to finding the perfect agent for you).

Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries.”
