Ms. Nelson personalized her response, and was quite kind and gentle in her rejection. Her criticism really made me pause and think about my manuscript in a way I hadn't before, a fact for which I'm grateful.

FR 2/14/2023 (bland, form rejection. I appreciate her adding to my 2023 actual rejection count. It seems more professional and polite than never replying at all.)

Quick turnaround for rejections, which I've come to appreciate. I hate closing out queries after months because I have no idea if they even got it.
