YA Psych Thriller

Her rejection letter praised my writing, but said she didn't like one of the elements of the book. No R&R was offered, so I can only assume she didn't know how to like it without the element. She was kind, though.

Form but a nice one:

Thank you for considering me for representation and for sharing your project with me. I appreciate the opportunity and am always grateful for the chance to consider what someone has poured time, energy, and heart into creating.

Unfortunately, after careful review, I'm passing on this project. 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.

Very nice note with details on what she liked and what she'd like different. She said she'd be happy to see an R&R if I decided to do one, and gave me suggestions about the sorts of things she'd want to see. She sounds lovely to work with, so I'll have to consider it.

Very nice and kind step aside on 9th April - she seems like she's great to work with, and I really appreciated her quick response, but I'm happy with my other offer! :)

So yeah, 38 days from query to reject. Personalized. Nothing like the forms below--said she liked the setting. So I guess it was worth the wait? lol
