Adult fantasy, 75,000 words

Queried 5/9, form rejected 5/13

Thank you so much for submitting [TITLE] for my consideration. After careful review I'm sorry to say that I am not a right fit for your project, and so I will have to pass. I understand this industry is subjective and can be disheartening. Finding the right advocate is never an easy path but it is a possible one. No amount of rejection can define you as a writer and through perseverance I hope you find the right home for your work. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries.

Queried on 2/12, Adult Fantasy 107k

If decolonizing equals burning down an awful system, my book hopefully draws her attention.

Amazon's KDP is on the top of the list. I'm familiar with the process (I published a fun fact book I wrote and illustrated and a nautical history book I co-wrote with my father on there five or so years ago), and last year, they started offering hardcover as a 3rd option for publishing (the other two being e-book and softcover), which gives better variety. The other advantage is that, when you set your price and determine what royalty amount you want to get, even if Amazon later lowers the sale price for your book, you still get the royalty rate for the price that you set, even if the adjusted sale price is below that.
I read about one writer who had her book put on sale on Amazon for a period at a price that turned out to actually be lower than what she would have had to pay for author copies, so she ordered a ton of her own book to use at conventions and book fairs and ended up actually making money on the process because the royalties for each book were higher than the price she paid for them.
