"Thank you so much for letting me review, 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.

I submitted my query on May 10th for a young adult fantasy with 86k words prior to the June 1st deadline. Still prompt and courteous with the rejection.

3/17/22 Rejection... because at 41+K word it was too short for the genre. I respectfully disagree.
