Personalized with feedback, but in stark contrast to what other agents thought. Said she liked my humour, though, so at least I've got that going.

Thank you so much for allowing The Knight Agency to consider your material. Unfortunately, after carefully reviewing your query, we’ve determined that this particular project isn’t the right fit for us at this time. As I’m sure you know, the publishing industry changes swiftly now, as do readers’ tastes and trends. As a result, our own agents’ needs shift and change, as well; therefore, we would like to encourage you to consider querying us with future projects as you may deem appropriate.

Again, thank you very much for allowing us this chance to consider your material, and we wish you all the best in your publishing endeavors.

FR 6/07(?) I originally queried Travis Pennington, who requested my full. I heard back from him today, and he is stepping away from YA for now. He passed along my query to Janna, and she then asked him for my full, which she now has.

Fingers crossed!!

7/6 Very kind, very complimentary personalized rejection, inviting me to submit any other projects I have now and in the future.
