EQ: 10 May
ER: 18 May, variation on the customized form letter. I am so grateful that she took the time to send a letter AND customize it AND she did it in about a week. Absolutely wonderful. 10/10 would query again

Resubmitted 5.3.18 - I suppose my first Query was lost in cyber space, Lindsay Davis Auld stated she did not receive my first submission.
ER: 5.3.18 - unfortunately not accepted, Lindsay was prompt, kind and respectful.

Received the "your work is charming" form rejection but was personalized in that it listed my name and title of book, always a plus, and I appreciate the quick response

"This is an original concept and you've done a great job creating a novel with a strong voice and engaging characters. That said, after careful consideration, I just didn't connect as strongly with this project as I would need to in order to represent it."

Really bummed about this one.

Fast and courteous response. Likely a well-written form letter, it was encouraging to actually hear back in a timely manner. It tells me she takes queries seriously and respects the efforts of perspective authors.

As below, there is some minor personalization: "Your work is interesting; however, after careful consideration, I just didn't feel I would be the best fit for this project and so I'm going to have to decline the invitation to read more of your manuscript."

Thank you for your query regarding your YA speculative fiction thriller.

Your work is interesting and this is an original concept; however, after careful consideration, I just didn't feel I would be the best fit for this project and so I'm going to have to decline the invitation to read more of your book. As you know, these decisions are highly subjective and another agent may have an entirely different opinion.Thanks again for thinking of me. I wish you the best of luck in finding a good home for your writing.

Appreciate her quick response, even if it was a no.

Your story is charming; however, after careful consideration, I just didn't feel as enthusiastic about this project as I would need to in order to represent it. As you know, these decisions are highly subjective and another agent may have an entirely different opinion.

Thanks again for thinking of me. I wish you the best of luck in finding a good home for your writing.
