Form Query: April 23rd, 2022
Partial Request: July 6th, 2022
Submission Sent: July 6th, 2022
Full Request: July 21st, 2022
Full Rejection: August 7th, 2022

Really sad it's a rejection, obviously, but I deeply appreciated her expediency, and she gave me some personalised feedback which complimented multiple aspects of my work as well as stated why she personally didn't connect with it. I've had a handful of submission rejections by now, but this was the only personalised one so far, and is my favourite because of it.

Form Rejection: 7/1/22:

"Thank you so much for letting me review [TITLE], but I’m going to decline at this time. Unfortunately, I just don't feel that this project is the right fit for me. I know you've put a lot of time and effort into your project; 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.

Thank you for considering me for your manuscript and I wish you great success with your writing career."

EQ: 04/04/22 - Agent originally requested back in Dec off a PitMad pitch but an agency sibling had the ms at the time. Submitting now as requested.
PR: 04/29/22 - 50 page request sent same day.
ER: 06/07/22 - welp, while it's a rejection, it's also the FIRST query out of twenty-eight to come back with ANY sort of feedback for this book. Cortney was thoughtful and direct and while we may ultimately not be a good fit (this book and most my writing end pretty hopeless and she wants at least a 'single ray of hope' by the final pages) I'll certainly query her in the future with my next project. I've never felt this good about a rejection, haha.
