Kind rejection 9/14/22

All right, pretty sad about this rejection, but also super thankful that she responded so quickly? I've got a lot of respect that she gave such a quick response after just opening.

Yep, another full rejection on 09/09, similar wording to those below. Friday desk clearing. Sigh.

Form rejection on full MS: 09/09

@Thornbird1888 @nolnod suspect you may be right - mine was worded the same

It might have been because she had just signed 2 clients at the same time right after she closed to queries so maybe she's just too busy or her list is too full? I'm not sure.

Pretty sure she mass-rejected all of her fulls on the same day. They all have the same form email with one line of vague personalisation.

Full Request!!! - 29th April 2022 ( I got a full rejection the same day so this full request has made me happy and hopeful. she might still reject the full, but I'm happy)
Nudge - 19th of April 2022 (just shy of 3 months)
Rejection - 9th of September 2022. - This hurt. a lot.

Dear -

Thank you so much for your patience while I’ve been reading and considering ___ and apologies for the delay in coming back to you - it’s taken me a little while to work through my reading pile this year. I’m sorry to say that after careful consideration, I have decided to respectfully pass. This is a really great premise and your characters are well-drawn, but ultimately, I can only take on so many projects and I didn’t feel as strongly as I would need to in order to offer representation and be the best champion for the book.

Thank you again for giving me the chance to consider your work, and I wish you the very best of luck going forward.

All best,

Zoë
