I didn't expect to hear back at all tbh...

"Thank you for allowing me to consider your work. I apologize for the long delay in my response.

I wish I could send encouraging word as to the marketing prospects for [book title] through this agency. Regretfully, I just don’t feel confident in my ability to be your best advocate to place this work with a publisher in this competitive market.

Of course this is just one opinion in a dependably subjective business. Another reader may see immediate possibilities.

Please accept my best wishes for success with your writing.

Sincerely,
Rebecca Scherer??"

EQ (form) -- 2/16/2021 Speculative Fiction 84K Submission guidelines were to include synopsis and first three chapters -- the form is not too author-friendly for that inasmuch it deletes all formatting...

ER: 10/29/19. I had closed this 2 months ago. Took 171 days for her to respond but I appreciate the response nonetheless.

I wish I could send encouraging word as to the marketing prospects for [TITLE] through this agency. Regretfully, I just don’t feel confident in my ability to place this work with a publisher in this competitive market.

I sent it via email per the instructions here (which is what she has linked on her Twitter): http://aaronline.org/Sys/PublicProfile/38814724/417813

Worst form online form the planet today, except of course for Sterling Lord, which has an even worse online form. Ridiculous in this day and age.
