Thoughtful and kind rejection. Didn't connect with the manuscript as much as she'd hoped.

EQ-11/3/17
ER-11/3/17 (18 hours later)-I initially took this as a real negative, but I feel better now. I received the same boilerplate language that several others did below, but with a comment specific to my PB ms. Contemplating a revision and resubmit, even though she didn't specifically offer it. Interested in comparing notes, stop by my blog at www.brianwoods.blogspot.com and leave me a comment.

Thanks, stanleyyelnats. I queried Jan. 9. I guess I'll wait a little longer assuming she's going through queries in order received.

Has anyone who queried her before she closed in January received a response?

As others have mentioned this was essentially a form rejection with slight personalization, which I honestly think is amazing for an agent who reads the volume she does.

"While I enjoyed your voice, I'm afraid the premise didn't fully grab me. Keep in mind, this industry is very subjective and, as such, I would encourage you to continue submitting in the hopes of finding the right agent for you."
