FR: 22 July with nice form-ish email.

No further response to full ms... Nudged in early Oct and no response to nudge. A shame as she seems lovely.

Dear Name,
I thought you captured the time period well, but I'm afraid I wasn't fully drawn in by the narrative.

I heard back in about 18 days. She said she was really intrigued by the concept but thinks I'd be better served by a US agent which makes sense since my book comments on Hawai'i and our treatment of the state. Oh well :(

Polite form rejection saying she didn't connect with the narrative.

Dear NAME,

Thank you for giving me the chance to read your work.

I admired the ambitious premise; however, I'm afraid I wasn't completely drawn in by the opening chapters.

This is of course, a subjective opinion.

I wish you the best with your writing and thank you for thinking of me.

Note for those submitting to Catherine: she seems to get to emailed queries a little faster than form queries.

Kind rejection - I get the impression hers are modified templates. Mine said she admired the ambitious premise and quality of writing but wasn't drawn in by the opening chapters.
