Hey, everyone! Ms. Nelson requested my full back in May, and just got back to me. It was a rejection, but she was super nice and wonderful. She told me what she liked and why she ultimately rejected it. I highly recommend querying her. Just thought I'd let others know who are waiting on fulls that it might take a while, but she is reading.

Police form rejection. Opened with apology about length of time for reply (which really isn't that long if you ask me).

"I thought your query and sample were well-written with a strong concept but not quite what I’m looking for at the moment. Because I’m careful to keep my client list manageable, I’m being really selective about what I request. However, I think another agent is going to be intrigued enough to ask for the manuscript and I’m sorry I can’t offer a referral."

I actually forgot about this one, so it was nice to hear from her. She was very apologetic about being so late getting back to me.

11/25: Rejection explaining she had set aside a few queries to consider further. No personal feedback, but it's nice to know her assistant liked it enough to pass it along
