"Thank you for your thoughtful query. After careful consideration, I don’t feel your work is the exact right fit for me at this time, so it’s best that I pass. As you likely know, this is a subjective business, and I’m sure another agent will feel differently. I appreciate the opportunity to consider your book and wish you the very best moving forward with it."

@AuthorGGRyn , some agents said to tack on extra time to their response time due to the holidays.

Hannah sent me the nicest rejection. She provided me with thoughtful, constructive feedback on my full and it's super helpful.

Ha, well, I guess I can save myself a rejection here. I just realized my rejection from Steven Malk came from Hannah Mann (She was his assistant, and I guess
is still doing some of the slush pile work? It was personalized and very nice, but still a rejection. They'd previously requested a full of a past MS) I usually submit to multiple Writers House agents since they allow that but in this case it's pretty moot.

Very helpful rejection letter. She seems really kind. I think I'd be lucky to get to work with her in the future.

A form-like and yet slightly personalized rejection that was kind of strange for how it sounded as if she read the whole manuscript (didn't 100% connect with all elements of the story) when the query didn't even include sample pages or even a synopsis. Odd, but still nice and encouraging nonetheless.

"Thank you for your thoughtful query and sample. You’re a talented writer and have a creative premise here. These great things considered, I wasn’t connecting with all the elements of the story 100%, so it’s best that I step aside.

Thank you for the opportunity, and I wish you the very best moving forward with your work.

Kind regards,

Her genre list needs to be updated. Previous comments indicate she’s only focusing on Children’s. Her Publishers Marketplace page seems to indicate that within that she’s especially interested in SFF.

Is there any other information as to what type of books she likes? I find it really helpful with twitter or if they have blogs with wishlist, because i hate wasting their time reading a query if it's not something they're interested in you know what I mean
