Romcom, 83K

Similar to below - response was from Rebecca and it felt somewhat personalised (referenced my premise being 'fun and commercial' but said she didn't click with my writing in the way she wanted to). A really kind message overall!

Rejection email from 'Submissions' but signed by Rebecca. The message is kind and sounds personal: 'the premise is intriguing' but she didn't 'click with it'.

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
