QueryKombat Request: 6/16/18

EQ: 6/19/18 - + 50 pages
ER: 6/26/18

YA Fantasy, 79,000 - personalized rejection

Adding rejection text:

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 loved that this took place in San Francisco, however, I don’t feel I'd be the best agent to make this stand out on the current market. I also currently have a project on my list that has elements of time travel. You are a talented writer, so I’m sure you will find a home for this! I wish you every success with [ ].

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

One of the most encouraging rejections I’ve ever received. I’d query her again in a heartbeat with the next project if she’s open.

"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.

This was definitely a unique take on this genre and your query grabbed my attention. However, I'm looking for a bit more crossover appeal when it comes to YA. Nevertheless, I wish you every success with (_)!

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

If it's a form, it's a very nice form, and I appreciate it :)

"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 have a good story here, however, I don't feel I'd be the best agent to make this stand out on the current market. Nevertheless, I wish you every success with [story name]!

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

Warmly,
Dorian"

I think it's a form rejection, but I'm not totally sure. Everyone else says hers is the nicest rejection they've ever gotten, but to me it feels about as nice as most other form rejections.
