Silly me. I misspelled his name in the query letter. (Cordona instead of Cardona). I didn't notice it until I went through my query list again. I hope that's not the only reason why he rejected me.

Many thanks for your note. This material doesn't seem quite right for me, so I’m going to respectfully pass. I wish you the best of luck elsewhere and many thanks again for the opportunity to read your work.

Very fast...not my record, but only about 5 hours to reject...certainly didn't leave me hanging! Form letter, though very nice --

Cardona was my second rejection of the day. A shame because I really was impressed with some of his agency's work and am hoping to find someone with experience with writers of color.

On 3/23/16, I've requeried Moses with Chain Reaction. Today I've nudged him and heard back--I was on hold before he went on London Book Fair. But he decided to pass, since he's stacked with queries and doesn't have the time to look at it again. He wished me luck with it and mentioned Thrillerfest, which is something I can't afford. So I'll retry Anne with Chain Reaction later in May.

Form letter "While this appears to be a strong project, I'm afraid it doesn't strike me as a likely fit with me..."

Got back to me the same day I sent it. It was a rejection saying my project was strong but it didn't fit with his other contracts

Sent query 11/30 with 3 chapter attached. So far he is only agent I've found who accepts attachments.

Nudged him and he replied that my sub is n his TBR file. Happy Dance
