Also got a semi-personalised response and quickly which I’m super appreciative of. Would definitely query again in future if needed.

It was mostly a form reject but I super appreciate that she took the time to say "this slants a bit too far into the high fantasy genre for my personal tastes"! Really gives context.

"Thank you for resubmitting this project. 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 reconsider, however, I still don't feel this is right for my list at this time. I have to be extra picky when it comes to YA SF. Nevertheless, I wish you every success with [title] 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!

Personalized rejection
If you wait over 2-4 days she will most likely get back to you after a month or so with a personal note or full request.
Very kind “love the premise, kept coming back to it, just didn’t fall in love”
A great querying experience either way. A fast reject if it’s not in her wheelhouse, a thoughtful personalized rejection if she read sample pages and didn’t connect.
Plan to query in the future with different projects!

"The premise grabbed my attention--I love a good hook!--however, I don't feel I have a crystal clear editorial vision for this project. This is completely subjective, so don't give up! "
