Felt like a mix of a form rejection with maybe a personalized comment or two, couldn't tell.

Sent full 10/24/19
Rejected 8/27/20 (give or take a day)

She included a very kind and complimentary note about my work. She pointed out several specific things she liked about the book and explained that she didn't connect with the character enough to care deeply about her evolution. Though that is a stock reason to reject, her comments were detailed enough that I believe she actually read at least a substantial chunk of the book. As it took another woman even longer to reject the book with a generic reply, I appreciate her thoroughness. Still, it sucks.

Onward (sigh).

Included first chapter and full synopsis, as requested in submission guidelines. (Literary Fiction) Received this rather nice form rejection in 8 days:

Dear [My first name),

Thank you very much for your query. You certainly have an intriguing premise in [TITLE OF MY NOVEL]. However, I’m afraid this project isn’t quite the right fit for my list, so I’m not the best agent to champion your work. While I must step aside, I wish you the best of luck in all of your endeavors.

Best,
Aimee

Nudge: 2/13/20 - she apologized and said she was a bit behind, and that she'd get to it soon!

It's now about 12 weeks since that nudge, and 22 since the initial full request. I'm wondering if I should take her delay as a lack of interest in my manuscript and if I should just close out :(

EDIT: adding that this was a 93K YA fantasy

I met Aimee at a Query Roulette event sponsored by the Women's National Book Association in May. She is a lovely person, sweet and bubbly, and she was very encouraging about my story. She requested a full on the spot -- now, of course, I'm going to look over my "finished" mss one more time to make sure it's the best it can possibly be. Fingers crossed!!!

FS: 10/26/19

I sent the full a few weeks ago, and she promptly responded and told me she couldn't wait to read. I'm bracing myself for bad news, but keeping my fingers crossed nonetheless. She seems so nice and I had a great time talking to her at Query Roulette.

UPDATE: She never responded to my full. I've kind of lost hope.
