She had nice things to say, but didn't connect with one of the POVs on a personal level.

Can anyone tell me if the query letter and synopsis should also be double-spaced, or does that refer only to the chapter? I normally single-space the letter and synopsis, always with trepidation.

ER: Same day, but nice personalized letter. Made me rethink WF genre to include Suspense.

Dear (CindyintheRain),

Thank you for submitting (NOVEL TITLE) for consideration. I like that you focus on Claire as a complex and dynamic heroine and your insight into the finance world will undoubtedly appeal to a wide range of readers. However, because I don't personally connect with suspense novels and have very little experience with the wider thriller genre, I'm afraid I'm not quite the right fit for this project. While this is in no way a reflection upon the quality of your work, I must unfortunately step aside. I wish you the best of luck in all of your endeavors.

Sincerely,
Aimee Ashcraft

Good luck, WithinAPeriodPiece -- I think I saw a similar post by you with respect to another agent and said congratulations of the offer, too. Your post here is helpful to me, as I submitted my query on 2/16 and have not received a reply. Sometimes she responds really quickly so I was half-treating this as a rejection.

Timely and engaging rejection. Respect the efforts of writers efforts even if she passes, something to deeply appreciate.

Rejected 10 days later. I am hoping to get more feedback, but I know that I may not get it. There's no harm in asking :)

She replied with the following information:
Thank you for submitting THE LOST CHILD for consideration. I enjoyed your focus upon Paula as your intelligent and resilient heroine, as well as the ending twist that she was responsible for Ted's business being hacked. However, when reading your opening chapter, I found that I had difficulty personally connecting with Paula's narrating voice, which made it challenging to feel engaged with the novel's action and the characters you've created. While my experience is purely subjective and in no way reflects upon the quality of your writing, it is for this reason that I do not believe I am the best agent to champion your work and I must step aside. I wish you the best of luck in all of your endeavors.

Sincerely,
Aimee Ashcraft

A rejection but very thorough except I don't know why agents don't connect to the voice or the narration. They never explain that. Oh well, I decided to self-publish. This may be my final rejection. I recommend self-publishing. Commercial agencies ask for a very formulaic writing style.
