Form rejection. Very kind of her to get back to me at all. I knew it was a long shot, my book isn't really in her wheelhouse. Just like her blog.

She's away on a reading retreat, but will be back to queries on the 8th of this month.

Form rejection, but I always like the tone of Ms. Shark's.

Thank you for writing to me about your book. This isn't a project I can take on. Choosing which projects to pursue is entirely subjective, and certainly not an assessment of the quality of the writing, or the concept of your book. Like all agents, I've passed on books that went on to do well. I strongly encourage you to query widely.

Please think of this as redirection to another agent, not rejection.

Very best wishes to you!

Submitted query for Thriller/Suspense on 9/13/18. Fast rejection by form letter on 9/20/18

Next day rejection with the line "I can't take on this project" which sounded oddly abrupt, as if the query was offensive somehow? Query is not offensive and has received multiple requests. Also she reps the genre. That's not her form language, so not sure. Otherwise, quick turnaround at least.

Thank you for writing to me about this project.

I'm sorry this is a pass for me.

Right now my list is very full, and I'm fortunate that business is very good so I have to pass on projects that are not only good and publishable but ones I really like. That's a good problem for me, but it just stinks from the writer's viewpoint, yes indeed it does.

I strongly encourage you to query widely. Other agents have more room on their lists and are able to take on more than I can.

Please think of this as redirection to another agent, not rejection.

Very best wishes to you!
