Queried 9/24, rejected 10/12

Thank you so much for sharing [TITLE] with me. I've had a chance to review, and I'm so sorry to share that I'm going to step aside—due to volume of queries I unfortunately have to turn down most of the projects that cross my desk, even if the project is an absolute gem! I really appreciated the chance to take a look though and I hope you connect with the right agent very soon.

Rejection: 12/6/23

100k contemporary/LGBTQ+ romcom

Received a kind rejection letter that was personalized, detailed, with specifics from the manuscript. The closing was a "form letter" (as shared in some of the other comments) but everything leading up to it was unique to me and my submission. I appreciated that Ms. Goetz read my work closely before deciding to pass on it, even though the wait was long (six months).

Interestingly, Ms. Goetz only had positive feedback for me (!!!)—it was reassuring, but I was surprised, as I was expecting some critique to contextualize the rejection (again, as others have noted). The reason she gave is that she simply doesn't have the bandwidth right now. A classy, kind rejection that leaves you feeling encouraged, not defeated.
