ladyhoffman: I think that's just for Justin Bell. It also says: "Eleanor Wood is not accepting unsolicited manuscripts at this time, except by referral."

Patrick: When I checked out their website, I saw that they don't accept unsolicited manuscripts, but they do have instructions for queries by snail mail. They want a description of the book, background info, and the first ten pages.

Sorry it took me so long to put this one in. I was working 60 hours for the holidays. I don't remember the exact date, but it was around that week.

Subb'ed snail mail query in October 2011. Recieved form response 6 months later: "Unfortunately, I was not sufficiently enthusiastic to feel I'd be the right agent for your work. In addition, I'm taking on very few new clients..."

After three months, I thought my query may have been lost, but alas, no.

Form rejection sent back in the nice SASE I provided. No effort at even faking personalization. In fact, it couldn't have been a more stereotypical spotted, smeared copy of a copy of a copy of a copy form rejection if they'd hired an artist to design it ... so smudged and faded I had to squint and hold the page up to the light to figure out just who it was rejecting me.

C'mon, now. I know you guys are busy. I know you can't possibly reply personally to every single pathetic query, but I DO believe you probaby CAN come up for air from the slushpile long enough to whip up a fresh form reject letter so your rejectees can at least read it.

I've gotten enough rejections to have a moderately thick skin. But this was just laughably absurd.

Okay, I'm done with my rant. :)

Adult fantasy, form rejection. Sigh.

Thanks Oreo. I didn't meant to do start new threads for each revamped query. I'll go back to your comments and see what I can do, before I query this morning. I would also have to do some feedback too on other queries here.

New note: On 3/15, I've sent her a snail mail query. Today I've gotten a rejection back to her. Same as last time: she wasn't sufficiently enthusiastic to feel she'l be the right agent f or my work, and is taking very few new clients.
