I apologize for the delay in response.

After carefully considering the material you have submitted for representation, we have decided that it is not quite right for the agency at this time.

I encourage you to pursue your project with others. Many factors come into effect in the publishing process. Besides the inherent nature of the written material itself, it also takes the right chemistry, the right place and person to make things connect and come to fruition.

In this effort, I wish you the best of luck.

EQ 12/13. Got response in four hours to send full manuscript -- 104,000 word first novel that meets agency's specific "pop culture" interest.

The submission guidelines aren't clear. It seems like they want you to submit a non-fiction proposal even for fiction.

Maugjacq, an R&R is a Revise and Resubmit request. It means they like your story but they had ideas to make it better.

On 4/20/16, I've requeried James Fitzgerald with Venom--he passed today with a not for me rejection. I'll try him this summer with Chain Reaction.

Dear Angel. The agent and I simply didn't share the same vision for my novel.
