I don't know how to mark this up in Querymanager, since there doesn't seem to be an option.

Thank you for sending me the manuscript for XXX.

While this premise is exciting and I enjoy your writing, this didn’t wrap me up as I hope a story does in order to take it on. I know this isn’t ideal, and this is incredibly subjective. I’m sure another agent will feel differently.

Thank you for the opportunity, and good luck with other agents.

Full Rejection 1/23- minimal feedback

FQ: 11/08/23
Full request: 11/11/23 (sent the next day, with a note saying that I revised and reshuffled my opening chapters, which I hope she's okay with since it's different from the sample pages I queried.)

Rejected 12/12/23
Adult Fantasy 103K

I'm sad of course as this is my third full rejection but she gave me some really great feedback. The only problem is it contradicts what some other agents have told me but I guess that's why they say it's a subjective business, lol. Anyway, she was very kind and detailed which I appreciate. Seems like a nice agent to work with.
