Hmm I sent my query on the 5th with no response yet.

Lately, when I see someone else post about a response from a query after mine it means I'll get a rejection within the hour haha.

I'd closed this one out already (oops) before getting an R this afternoon. by far the BEST rejection I've received, mostly because it was very personalized AND she recommended I send it to a couple other specific agents.

Have any of y'all gotten replies like this (from any agent)? Does that mean in my query letters to those agents I can say, "Kelly Sonnack of ABLA recommended I send this to you"?

FYI, genres list women's fiction but their website says, "Kelly is not accepting submissions of adult fiction or adult non-fiction."

Very nice, personalized R on my 5/3 EQ stating it was too similar to a current client's project. I went to the Big Sur workshop and found ABLA to be extremely professional and at the top of their game, yet welcoming and helpful.
