ER: 7/20/19. Thought this agent would at least provide some sort of helpful critique. Pretty standard form rejection.

Thank you for your submission.
Your work is interesting and there are many strong elements in your story. That said, after careful consideration, I just didn't feel I would be the best match for this project. As you know, this is a very subjective business and, even though it's not right for me, it might be the perfect fit for another agent.
Thanks again for reaching out. I wish you the best of luck in finding a good home for your writing.
Sincerely,
Lindsay Davis Auld

Per her Publisher's Marketplace page, it would appear she isn't interested in adult books, despite the current genre listing here. Maybe an understandable confusion as she says "I'm particularly drawn to mysteries, fantasy, historical fiction, magical realism, adventure, and books with humor--light or dark or both." but that follows her specifying she's "seeking picture book, middle grade, and young adult manuscripts" and her genre specialties list confirms this reading.

Dear XX,

Thank you for the opportunity to read the first pages of XXXX.

This is an original concept and your work is interesting. That said, after careful consideration, I just didn't feel I would be the best fit for this project. As you know, this is a very subjective business and, even though it's not right for me, it might be the perfect fit for another agent.

Thanks again for reaching out. I wish you the best of luck in finding a good home for your book.

Sincerely,

Lindsay Davis Auld
