The page says 8-12 weeks. So CNR after 86 days. No point waiting any longer! Comments say this agent's timeline shows fantasy is usually rejected!

IWSGPit Request from Neyla Downs
EQ: 3/30
Full Request! 4/2
Full sent: 4/7
Rejection: 5/13

Tons of great feedback and complimentary things. It ultimately was a mismatch in vision, but I really appreciated the time Neyla took to write out what all they'd want done differently. She did say she'd be interested in a revision if I went that route. Fantasy writers, don't give up; it sounds like this agency is just very particular about what kind of fantasy they rep.

There's no point in staring at this one on my list, anymore. She's clearly not looking for any fantasy, regardless of what's on her genres list. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a 95.1% CNR rate for fantasy over the last 2 years.
Time to add one more CNR to that list.
