Thank you for your submission.

Your work is interesting; however, 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 writing.

I appreciate the kind and helpful letter from Ms. Auld in response to my Query. I was also impressed by her lightning-fast response, even though it was not the answer I was hoping for. If you have a book that might be a good fit, I highly recommend sending Writer's House your query.

Very quick response. I thought it was encouraging that she found my story interesting, gives me some hope.

This popped into my inbox at 12:47AM, so regardless of time zones, that was kind of a sign to me that she really works hard for her people and truly does carefully consider everything sent her way, with the intent of getting a response back as soon as she can. :) Best of luck to everyone else!

Lindsay was very kind with my first submision rejection. Still waiting to hear back about my second submittal. Hoping this is a good sign...

I think she is a great agent. Will continue to query with different style material.
