I received the following personal reply about a query I sent:

"Sorry John, but this does not fit my list."

What exactly does that mean?

Thanks in advance,
JP

It just means that it is not something the agent is looking to represent. I wouldn't read too deep into it, because the reasons why could be highly varied. (The writing style doesn't work for them, the theme doesn't work, the genre doesn't work etc).

It's the kind of rejection an argumentative writer can't hit reply and argue with. Forget it and move along. :-)

If you must read deeply into it, it could also mean "You sent me a Political Erotica. I sell mostly middle grade and picture books. This definitely does NOT fit my list."  wag
