Very kind personal rejection! He said "it sounds very powerful and compelling, but has a small press feel, and may be just too dark and strange to sell to the big houses"
Pretty amazing when a rejection makes you feel good about your query/book!

hoping that the longer they have it the more likely I'll get a positive response.

Hi bobbates,
That usually means the problem is on your end. Do you use a private email server? (instead of a free service such as gmail or yahoo mail) It sounds like you might, and your server was somehow branded as a source of spam. You'll need to talk with your email provider about it so they can get it removed from the spam lists.

I tried to submit a query to the email on the agency website, but it bounced back as undeliverable: "Connection refused due to abuse". Has anyone had a similar problem? (I got the same bounceback when trying to follow up to their "General Inquiries" email address (

@rouyuan: I haven't gotten very many receipt confirmations from agents in the past. I wouldn't let your anxiety about it climb too high. If you contact them within 90 days or so, they might see it as being too needy. Publishing is a slow business, waiting 3-6 months for the wheels to turn isn't out of the norm.
