97k Thriller. This was a #PitMad request. Melissa gave the most personalized rejection I've ever gotten. She clearly read my whole manuscript and put a lot of thought into what didn't work for her. As disappointing as it is for her to pass, I appreciate the feedback.

This was one of the most kind, personalized rejections ever. Nothing about her rejection was a form or part of a form or a semi-form. She wasn't drawn into my pages, but she was still so sweet and complimentary about my writing, and felt that it was "strong" and "lovely." Very glad I queried her, she's a doll. I'd query her again in the future in a heartbeat.

Sent same day. Fingers crossed as I really like her.
Melissa sent a very kind, personalized rejection as others have stated. Based on her feedback, I revised the book. Today (5/13/18) I sent her an email asking if she’d take a look at the revised version. We’ll see!

Update: she remembers the book well and would love to take a look!

ER: 4/4
The most lovely and personalized rejection I have yet received. It is clear that she took the time to truly engage with the manuscript. She articulated with specific details the things she felt worked well (including some aspects I'd begun to doubt, so that was reassuring), as well as the reason why she ultimately passed. I suspect she would be a joy to work with!

The list of genres states Thrillers/Suspense, but she wrote back after submission stating she did not represent thrillers.
