Update 2/17/24: the story’s not over yet! In January, I signed up for the WDU Agent One-on-One course that focuses on improving your first ten pages. Talcott Notch was the hosting agency and I was assigned to work with Amy. Long story short, she ended up loving those revised opening pages and just requested the full!! I’m over the moon happy - she’s absolutely wonderful and I would love to work with her. Fingers crossed!!

Original post: Query sent 10/28/23; personalized, complimentary rejection received 11/8/23
Adult horror, 110k

After getting nothing but form rejections, it was so encouraging to hear that, while she’s not the best agent for this particular novel, she loves my writing and thinks it’s a “worthy project.” Hope is renewed!

"Thank you for sending me a query for xxx. I appreciate all the time you took to fill out the form. I did go over each item carefully.

I'm sorry to say, though, that this book does not seem to be a fit for my list at this time, and so I must pass.

I wish I could give you more specifics, but it truly is just a matter of personal taste and editorial fit. It is in no way an indication of your talent or the worthiness of your work.

I appreciate how hard querying is and I wish you the best of luck. I am sure you will find an agent or publisher who is a better fit than I would have been.

All the best - Amy"
