Dear ___,
Thank you for your query, which I've read with interest. Unfortunately, I did not feel enthusiastic enough to take this further. I'm sorry to give you a disappointing response, but thank you for thinking of our agency in connection with your work. I wish you all the best with your future queries.

Personalized but confusing rejection. She stated she thought the premise was "very interesting" and my writing was "lovely", however, she didn't understand my premise. I posted the rejection and my thoughts on it in the QT forum "literary agents" if anyone is interested in reading the full description.

Submitted query 9/24/2022
Request for manuscript 9/25/2022
Carol did include in her request for the manuscript that she will not have time until January to review, which I am okay with.
My manuscript is approximately 101,000 words, which is slightly longer than her 100,000 word limit listed on her submission page.

Impersonal form rejection on full on 11/21/2022, sooner than expected.

I contacted her about a potential contract and she claimed she never received my query.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.
