Oh, this one hurt! I met her briefly at a conference and thought she was so great, and that she's looking for the kind of stories I do. She said I was a talented writer and the novel was "a good read," but she didn't feel passionately enough to represent it.

I wish she'd included some specifics about why.

Reply from assistant: 7/22/17 - She says Caryn is reading it now and will be in contact soon, and thanks me for my patience. So far I've been nothing but impressed with their politeness and prompt responses.
Form Rejection: 7/25/17 - No feedback other than Ms. Wiseman didn't feel strongly enough to represent the material. This seems to be common with this particular revision, so I'm not sure whether to revise or continue querying.

Either way, Ms. Wiseman and Ms. Nolen are polite and professional and I definitely intend to keep them in mind for future work.
