Very kind slightly personalized rejection after two days:

Thank you for your message. Having reviewed your query I'm afraid that [TITLE] isn't quite right for me at the moment. You are a great writer, but the breadth of the themes you explore makes your book skew a little too far on the literary side for my list, and I believe another agent would be better suited to work with you.

I appreciate you thinking of me and for giving me the chance to consider your work, and wish you every success with your search for an agent.

I submitted my query,(Commercial fiction. Family Saga) by email (as on website) rather than through query manager. I noticed that items before and after mine had received responses so I marked it no response. I guess it's a lesson to check the preferred way of sending items when querying. I did notice that other email queries seem to have received responses so a bit disappointed

submitted May 19, rejection May 20 with the most beautiful, heartwarming feedback that sung my praises as a writer. Basically my manuscript is more NA than A & as she doesn't represent NA she has decided to pass after much deliberation, but said that when I do find a NA agent they "will snap [me] up as [I] am clearly very talented". Brought a tear to my eye, was truly a delightful paragraph of feedback. Strikes me as someone who would be a wonderful agent who truly cares about you and your work.

Lovely rejection! You have a lovely, humorous voice... but as my tastes are naturally a little darker...
- really appreciate that FB :)
