I spent most of the year writing a book about a subject from her wishlist, just so I could shop it to Lauren.

Submitted 6-5, form rejection 7-10. Said she wasn't a good fit for it.

Dear Author,

I hope this finds you and your loved ones well in these complicated times.

Thank you very much for your query, and please forgive me for responding with a form letter. Unfortunately I don't feel that I'm the best fit for your project at this time. I wish you the very best of luck in finding the right home for this work and thank you, once again, for the opportunity to consider.


Best regards,
Lauren Abramo

cross fingers. Feel a little justified to verify as a no from one is a no from all at the agency.
@SomeLady--can't tell you whether this was a good idea or not--she responded shortly afterward with a form letter rejection.
Would it have been that anyway? probably. AT least I can move on.

I nudged Lauren about my query, knowing that it had probably been rejected. I really appreciate that she took the time to send back a quick email saying it wasn't for her.
