Helpful personal response, but not an invitation to resubmit. I feel they spent some time reading my manuscript and looking at my supporting documents, and then took the time to compose some suggestions, so I'm disappointed, but not too discouraged. I have some new reader responses and the Flannery comments, so I'm ready to do some rewriting and submit somewhere else.

Full request after 52 days! I'm blown away - I'd marked her as a CNR. Geeking out though, as she represents one of my absolute favourite YA authors.

Kind and encouraging rejection on full, with no workable feedback. I've been getting a lot of these from fulls - it seems as though there's nothing major that needs improving. Apparently the book either isn't right for the marketplace in general, or for specific agents' lists/tastes. Which is quite heartbreaking - I'd feel much better if there was some sort of flaw I could fix in rewrites. Still got 9 fulls out, fingers crossed one of them connects.

Very quick turn around: Thank you for your recent query letter to Flannery Literary and please accept our apologies for this form letter, a response method we resort to in the interest of timeliness. Please be assured that the time we did not spend customizing a personal response was, instead, used to carefully consider your submission to determine if we could be helpful to you.
