She said she had to pass on my query because she saw my query in her colleague's inbox when you can only submit to one agent at a time at her agency. However, her colleague rejected my query weeks before I queried her. She was the only agent I was querying at her agency at the time, so there was a misunderstanding I didn't get the chance to clear up.

110K fantasy. Form letter for rejection. Seems unusual given the other comments about the agent.

Rejection came within an hour. However, she explained in detail her reasons for doing so and indicated it had to do with personal taste. Additionally, she was not negative in her tone whatsoever. It was refreshing to see given that most are very clearly form responses.

I would not hesitate to query her again with a future project.

2/21/21 - Personalized rejection: "While there are elements about the project that are appealing, ultimately, the story isn't a fit for me at this time. To be blunt, I'm just not personally looking for a biker series right now. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries."

ER: 11/10/2020 ..... she said the reason she's rejected this (at this time at least) is because this query is still in the inbox of her colleague Julie. It's been sitting in Julie's box for 76 days now, and I marked it as a CNR. I've messaged the initial agent and we'll see from there. Otherwise, it's always great to get a quick response!

UPDATE 12/10/2020: Heard back from Julie, who had a similar story in her inbox which is why it took her a while to decide. She passed, but is going to see if Lizzie is interested.
