Form Rejection

Thank you for your query! I so appreciate the opportunity to review your work, but I’m afraid that it’s just not the best fit for my list at this time. Don’t be discouraged, though. Publishing is a marathon, not a sprint, and you just need one person to catch that shared vision. Best of luck to you!

I appreciate her quick turn-around for requests! I've noticed reading on here, she takes a few months to respond to fulls. Good to know, thanks all!

Form rejection: 6/7/21

Eleven whole months after sending my revised MS, I have *finally* received a form rejection. And I mean a genuine form, absolutely no mention of the 11 months she forgot about my submission. I'd written this off 6 months ago and honestly I would have preferred she simply ghost me. If you take THAT long, it's just my opinion maybe you should mention it.
