Submitted query on 21st Jan, 2023
Received rejection on 23rd Jan, 2023
Contemporary mythological fantasy 94,000 words
It was a form rejection. If I had not been consuming youtube videos by Bookends agency ( I highly recommend them), I would've been startled at the response time. According to them, the agents are on top of their queries and every agent will respond no matter the outcome. So that's a very good thing. Wish other agents had a quick turnaround too (positive or negative)
But, knowing all this, I wish I hadn't submitted to Amanda in the first round, it would've been nice to start querying without a straight rejection, so quickly :D

Thanks so much for sharing [Title] with me. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm the right agent for this project, so I will have to pass.

Please keep in mind that this is a subjective business and mine is only one opinion. I wish you all the best in your search for representation and in your writing career.

@beccaloulou thank you for letting me know! I've watched quite a few of their Youtube videos. The one on blurbs was my favorite so far.

@DanielleDayneyAuthor no, Jessica has said (on her YouTube) that you are welcome to query all the agents that fit your genre and their MSWL.

Does anyone know if a rejection from one is a rejection from all at BookEnds? I checked the site, but didn't find anything.
