A lovely form letter today from Kortney Price, for HONOR. Even though it's another rejection, I appreciate her courtesy. Best of luck to all those with queries out to her.

Form letter
I appreciated her quick response.
Thank you so much for your query! Unfortunately, your manuscript isn't quite the right fit for me at this time. The concept and and the voice of the sample pages didn't connect with me as much as I'd hoped. Due to this, I don't believe I'm the right agent to champion this piece.

I know you've put a lot of time and effort into your project. Take heart: the publishing industry is very subjective, so what may not work for me could be just what another agency is looking for. I strongly encourage you to continue your pursuit of publication.

Thank you for considering me for your manuscript and I wish you great success with your writing career.

Warm Regards,

Kortney Price

@nannan, I would just ask Kortney via Twitter. She's excellent at answering questions.

Looking for an opinion...

Kortney seemed very interested in my MS and asked for a partial and then a full. Today, I received a rejection from someone else at her agency saying that Kortney had forwarded it to her because they were both interested. She said she'd have to pass as she wasn't the right agent for it. Does this mean a pass from Kortney too? I'm perplexed :( kortney never mentioned passing on it or thinking someone else being a better fit....

3/8/18 ER. I think this qualifies as a personalized rejection.

Dear Jacob,
It was a pleasure to meet you at the Indianapolis Workshop! I enjoyed speaking with you and was so excited when your sample pages came through. Unfortunately I'm not going to be requesting more pages at this time. While I love the concept, I just wasn't grabbed by the pages as much as I would need to be in order to request more. I can tell you're a talented writer. My personal tastes are just not quite a match to this manuscript and style. There is a perfect agent out there for this story, and I strongly encourage you to keep querying and keep searching for that person.

Thank you for considering me for your manuscript and I wish you great success with your writing career.

Warm Regards,
Kortney Price
