...Form Rejection five minutes later?
I assume one of those is a mistake -- hope it's the reject!

Full Request was a mistake. Sigh.

Dear __,
Thank you so much for thinking of me, but this does not sound like a fit for my list at this time.
Thanks again for your query, and I wish you the best of luck with your book.

Thanks again for your query, and I wish you the best of luck with your book.

Of note, I queried Shannon four years ago on a completely different manuscript and I didn't even get a response, so this rejection is an improvement (I guess). Either that, or the advent of QueryManager has allowed her to get more organized.
