Dorian is one of the warmest, kindest agents out there. She really cares about her job and would be an excellent partner in a writer's career. I highly suggest querying her.

Fast turnaround but encouraging.

“Thank you for your query. Please know I carefully considered your project, but I don’t feel I can offer representation at this time. The marketplace is more selective than ever and I must keep a modest list.

You are a strong writer, however, I don't feel I am the right agent to make this stand out on the current market. This is completely subjective, so don't give up! Nevertheless, I wish you every success with...”

Thank you for your query. Please know I carefully considered your project, but I don’t feel I can offer representation at this time. The marketplace is more selective than ever and I must keep a modest list.

I appreciate the opportunity to consider, however, the writing didn't pull me in as much as I had hoped. Nevertheless, I wish you every success with MODIFIED! Don't give up!

Keep going with it, there are numerous agents out there that may be a good fit. I wish you the best of luck!

Queried on July 22nd. Received a kind, polite rejection two days later stating that "The premise is intriguing, however, I didn't fall head over heels in love enough to move forward with the manuscript."

Very happy with this little piece of feedback as it's the second rejection in a row telling me something similar. I know the query and concept work, but I need to polish the opening pages.

One thing was my word count is too short for her. She mentioned she usually reps 60,000-100,000.
