6/22/17: Nicest rejection EVER! She complimented my use of multi-POV & even said my writing is "top-notch"! Ultimately, part of the main plot was too dark for her, though.

Quite a story about this one. I queried her 5/16/16. She requested a partial on 6/10/16.
Silence ensued.
On 2/14/17, I followed up. She got back to me on the same day, very apologetic. My partial had been misplaced but she had it, and would read. On 2/16, she requested the full.
Today, I got a rejection, but it was extremely helpful, pointing out in detail where the story had gone off the rails for her. She is very personable and, being a writer herself, I think she has great empathy for what writers endure on their paths to publication. I think she has a bright future as an agent and, if you're dithering about whether to query her, DO IT!

PR - 1/12/2017 - SO FAST! - Sent first 3 chapters 1/12/2017
ER - 1/30/2017 - She sent some comments. I find it helpful to know why someone sends a rejection. I really liked her. I'd sign with her in a heartbeat!

Thank you for sending the partial. While I loved the premise of this book, I'm afraid I wasn't able to quite connect with the voice as I had wished so will need to pass. I think this has a lot of potential with the right agent and editor so don't give up the ship! (See what I did there?)
