Personalized query rejection, telling me why she didn't connect with the story, wishing me luck, and encouraging me to query her with other projects in the future.

ER: 6/15/20

Personalized query rejection explaining me what she liked about the sample, things to be fixed and that their agency didn't represent my genre -- adult urban fantasy (I'm not sure how I missed that!)

Update: I had asked if I could send a revised sample a few months ago. Today (4/8/20) she apologized for the delay and said that I could, so I sent that off today. :)
5/18/20-Helpful Rejection. Her email said what she enjoyed and what she would have improved. Ultimately she didn't connect, but she gave some great direction. Sad, but encouraged.

The writing wasn't holding her attention as much as she would have liked. Darn :/

I just don't get it. Why do some people get fast responses while others have to wait 3-6 months to get a reply?

ER: 06/25 - so quick, which I appreciate! Comments were kind of odd, though... she didn’t like that there was social commentary, even though the story takes place during a time period wrought with social issues? Given that, I’m not too sad about this.
