1/27/18 PR from Hilary Harwell
She said Kate didn't feel my novel was a good fit for her list, but she was interested. Asked for five chapters and a synopsis.

Thanks so much for sharing [title] with me. While I found [name] to be a darling protagonist, I ultimately didn't connect with the project in the way I'd need to to pursue further and be the best champion for it. I do appreciate you sharing it with me and hope you'll keep me in mind for future work.

This was one of the kindest rejections I’ve received to date. She seems wonderful and I’ll definitely be querying again once my next project is complete.

I sent my query on 10/22/17 and haven't heard back--- the website says they try to reply to all queries in 2 weeks. Has anyone heard back from her from a query sent on/after 10/22? Thanks!

Update: I nudged her and she replied that she had replied a few days after my query but they were having server problems. This was followed by a form rejection. :(
