Rejection: 9/14/23 (literally five minutes after the email was sent)

I can't even be mad, she knows what she doesn't want (rhyming books) and got back to me quickly and honestly!

Fair enough according to her wishlist - only taking author/illustrators. Though I'd give it a go as I liked the cut of her jib!

@emilywinter21 why is this a rude response? Authors keep wondering why they're being rejected, and Anna explained herself: because she's not a fan of rhyming books. It's because of people like you that agents don't provide feedback. Because people are never happy. You provide feedback, and oh my God, it's not polite enough, the agent hasn't apologized a hundred times for the rejection! And why is it wrong to not be a fan of rhyming books? Just accept that some people, like yourself, like rhyming books, while other people don't like them! Shocking, huh? Not everyone's like you!

Very rude rejection. "Sorry, but I'm not a fan of rhyming books." A form rejection would've sufficed.
