"Thank you for sending me your query.
This isn’t something I can take on.
Please don’t think of that as
a negative assessment of your writing
or your book.
Agents are all looking for different things
and what’s not a fit for me can be exactly what
someone else is looking for.
Please don’t think of this as rejection
so much as redirection to an agent who will be a better match.
I hope you’ll query widely.
Warm wishes,
Janet"

I don’t know if this is her common response but it was hopeful at least.

Her Twitter said she was caught up through 4/2, so I queried again on 4/4 since I didn’t get a response.

Form rejection response on 4/22

It sucks to get rejected but The Shark has done so much with her blogs and advice to make this entire shit process at least somewhat easier to navigate. For that reason her rejection doesn’t have near the same bite as others.
