Romcom, 83K

Similar to below - response was from Rebecca and it felt somewhat personalised (referenced my premise being 'fun and commercial' but said she didn't click with my writing in the way she wanted to). A really kind message overall!

Rejection email from 'Submissions' but signed by Rebecca. The message is kind and sounds personal: 'the premise is intriguing' but she didn't 'click with it'.

Because of the high volume of submissions we receive, unfortunately we are not able to give you more detailed feedback than this. However, these things are very subjective and someone else may well feel differently about your work. Thank you again for letting us take a look at your material, and we wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher."
