2/23/17: ER from Lori Oberweger, with a long vague list of common reasons why she might have passed (not very helpful).

FQ - 12/6
ER - 2/3 - I queried Tracy but got a response from Lorin. At first glance seemed like concise feedback with several points regarding the manuscript. But upon further review I realized that it might just be a more thorough form rejection. She used very broad terms and vague reasons for passing, and didn't mention my name or any of the characters. Wait, as I write this, I see that she begins with "I can, however, offer the most common issues I’m seeing in submissions", which cements the fact that it was a form. I really appreciate her taking the time to respond, but offering the most common issues she's seeing other people's work doesn't really help despite her good intentions. It only confuses you more because you have zero idea which one of these things she listed applies to your manuscript specifically. I would have appreciated it more if she'd just say it wasn't right for her. All and all though, I appreciate that she responded. Many agents nowadays just leave you hanging.

Their form states that for picture books they are only interested in author-illustrators at this time.

I submitted my full via form in June, but never received a receipt. Should I be worried it was never received? I mean, I know they only respond if interested and my chances are slim to none, but I'd at least like to know if they had the chance to consider my ms....

10,000 submissions yearly! Am I wrong to be skeptical of this number?
