Thank you for the opportunity to see your pages. Unfortunately, I don't feel I am the right agent for this project, so I'm passing. Just because I wasn't quite drawn in, however, doesn't mean there isn't another agent out there who will love it.

I wish you the best of luck on your writing journey!

I sent this agent another query for another title within the page count they wanted and it’s wild that I got a form rejection that said she wasn’t drawn in. I mean I gave you want you wanted both books were sci-fi fantasy and they were stand-alones in the same universe so yeah I don’t know if they even know what they want since my first book in the series was 140k which is fine for epic space operas. The second book of the series was 90-95k which is marketable according to this agent.

*prompt rejection — even included the revising of query. Probably more appropriate to give a form rejection without advice of revising query
