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.

Just received this auto-reponse:

Dear Author,

I am currently on maternity leave so I am not considering new projects for representation at this time. Please select one of my colleagues to submit to in my stead by visiting our website (read through their profiles and tastes, pick one, and then follow our submission guidelines carefully when submitting).

Thank you for thinking of me with your work; I wish you the best of luck,

Kelly Sonnack
