3/25/13, I sent Judith a snail mail query for Chain Reaction. Today I've gotten her rejection--she doesn't believe it's salable for today's markets. Oh well.

Form rejection. Upmarket fiction.

On 3/10, I've sent them a snail mail query to Judith Weber. Today I've heard back from them. They said they're only reading material on an exclusive basis from referrals from editors and other writers, and present clients, and consequently unable to afford proper considerations to unsolicited submissions.

Received rejection letter, but at least it was personalized with our names. That's a lot more than I can say for lots of other agents.

Hi there eallen99,
If it helps, I got back exactly the same rejection you did and signed by Judith Weber. Exactly. So, I feel a little bit better now:-).

Oh joy, I get to post the first rejection. Surprised to get smail (snail mail)back so fast and it was actually signed by Nat Sobel. All personalized and essentially said " sorry to report we don't believe this book is salable in today's tough marketplace. We've been proven wrong before though, so Good luck."
