I really loved the extra questions she asked on her QueryManager form. She seems really cool and kind and her future clients will be very lucky to work with her! I'll definitely try again with future projects.

Form rejection, but less than a week response time. The MS had a lot of aspects mentioned in her MSWL, which I brought up in the query, so I'm pretty disappointed in the rejection.

Very well put, MWeisberg. You are correct, agents would not want to use QueryManager if their information was being shared with their competitors.

Zanmac70, no. The online forms agents are suddenly using (QueryManager) are actually part of QueryTracker, made by the same people who made this website right here. The purpose of QueryManager is to collect more and better data for QueryTracker, by offering a free service to agents and tying the results together. In other words, QueryManager exists to help US, the writers. It is not a tool with which the agents can collude against us by sharing rejections with each other.

As tempting as it is to assume everything is a conspiracy designed to keep us down, agents don't have time to scheme. They just read query letters as fast as they can and look for ones that jump out at them. When they aren't sure, they sit on them for a while and might ask other agents at their agency. However, there's no way in Hell they will ask their competitors for advice on whether or not to sign a new author. Think about it! Why would they share a prospect with someone who might steal that prospect away from them? No query service that shares the results (rejection or otherwise) with other agents would ever fly with agents.

There are a lot of things that are screwed up about the publishing industry. But your query getting blacklisted by mysterious online forces isn't one of them. Don't worry!

form -- Thank you so much for letting me review [TITLE], but I’m going to decline at this time. Unfortunately, your beginning just isn't pulling me in the way I had hoped. I know you've put a lot of time and effort into your project. Take heart: the publishing industry is very subjective, so what may not work for me could be just what another agency is looking for. I strongly encourage you to continue your pursuit of publication.
In your search for the perfect agent you may want to check out Writers Digest Guide to Literary Agents blog. I have found it to be a great resource for finding new agents that are looking to build their lists.
I also encourage writers to gather beta readers and critique partners to help hone your craft; their suggestions can be invaluable.
Thank you for considering me for your manuscript and I wish you great success with your writing career. I hope you'll consider me again for your next work of art.
