Personalized rejection 4/3
Invitation to R & R based on a few slips to passive voice. Loved writing/ concept, etc, otherwise. But I think, reading more about her, I won’t resubmit. I’ve got 3 fulls out and I think my work is not as high fantasy as she seems to like. It is magical realism lit fic, with lots of character driven parts. But she was very pleasant in the rejection

I think that the beta reader line is a new addition to her form letter, this was her reply to me from back in October (to be fair, it was in response to a requested pitch contest query, so it was slightly personalized. (MG 31,000)

Dear [Raelyn21],

Thank you so much for your submission, but I am going to pass at this time. Unfortunately, while I think you have an inventive concept and a good voice, I didn't connect with the story progression—as outlined in the synopsis—and the ending felt too extravagant to really pull me in. Due to this, I don't believe I'm the right agent to champion this piece.

Thank you for considering me for your work, and I wish you luck in your writing future.

Thank you so much for your query, but I am going to pass at this time. Unfortunately, the concept and 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. Thank you for considering me for your work, and I wish you luck in your writing future.

No, beta readers aren't going to happen... we don't write by committee.

My rejection said the same thing regarding the critique groups and beta readers. I did have it critiqued and beta read. For those of you who also had beta readers and critiques and paid editors, don't take it personally. I think this is just her standard form-letter rejection.

melgough -- my rejection said the same thing, and I had also consulted a paid editor, and spent a couple of months making revisions, and had several beta readers. Don't take it personally. I've received very positive feedback from almost all my queries, including several submission requests.

My response also suggested I get some beta readers. I paid a professional editor $800 for an actual edit of this MS, have spent days on revisions and had one beta reader. If the suggestion to get beta readers is part of the form response then I'm not finding that very professional.

But! The rejection was incredibly kind and personalized, AND she left it open to an R&R if I decide to revise the manuscript. She didn't like the epistolary format - which, to be honest, I'd been toying with revising anyway. She was incredibly sweet and encouraging. Not only would I submit again with other material, I will definitely do an R&R for her if I'm not offered rep from the agents with which I have fulls out currently. I really like Kaitlyn!

I didn't appreciate her suggestion that I get beta readers as if I would send to her without having received tons of feedback and made literally hundreds of revisions.
