As with others, a personal and cordial rejection, with a clear explanation of why she was passing, along with praise for some aspects of the manuscript.

I'm wayyyy late to leaving a comment but since I just submitted my R&R last week I wanted to pop in here and say that thus far Anne has been great to communicate with at every stage and I highly encourage seeing if your mss might be a good fit for her!

Yay! Not a form rejection. She passed, but said a few nice things, which I appreciate so much. I am very sad about this one, guys, because Anne seems like a wonderful person and I would love to work with her.

I technically have already sent her a manuscript but she was changing agencies so I guess she didn't read it before. I sent the query on 4/12/2019. I remember that she was really nice before and told me something to do to improve the queries that I was sending. I will update this when I get a response.

Genre: Dark Fantasy
Word Count: 66,000

I was rejected by another form letter on 5/6/2019. Guess I need to go back to hoping one of the others that I queried will accept.

Received confirmation of receipt, 12/12 and said she'll be in touch within 4-6 weeks.
Nudge sent 1/20/19
Received reply this morning that I'm in her reading pile and needs another week, crossing fingers! She seems super nice as many have stated and very efficient, I'd love to work with her!
ER: 1/22/19 Very nice, personal and constructive reason as to why she was passing, which I appreciated immensely. Though I wonder, since I've actually been working on the revisions for exactly what she described if she would be open to a re-query or maybe an R&R but I don't want to badger anyone, a pass is a pass.

Update 1/25/19: I emailed back a couple days ago and asked if she would want a second look after I finish my revisions and she said she would! Very excited to finish but also taking my time to make this manuscript the very best it can be!

UPDATE:
Sent the revised partial 3/29 and finally got a confirmation email today--not complaining since she has moved agencies. Given 4-6 week to hear back, oh my gosh I'm nervous and excited all at once! Either way though, I'm so glad I made it this far!

This one really hurt, guys. I really thought this book was a perfect match for her.

"Thank you for querying me at D4EO Literary Agency. Unfortunately, I did not connect with this particular pitch and I'm going to pass. Of course, other agents may feel differently. I wish you all the best of luck with your search for representation."

ER: 4/9/19 An incredibly, incredibly kind and encouraging rejection. I 110% recommend querying Anne because she seems fabulous based on the limited amount of communication I had with her!

Asked if I could send later as I'm currently working on revisions based on some agent feedback and she said yes!
