between rejection and green light

(1/1)

ABaden:
Literary agents either reject or green light queries...Why is my submission in between? Anyone?

Tabris:
It may be in the "read this again and think about it" pile, which many agents do have. It's easy to reject the query that's one long continuous sentence or submitting a cookbook to an agent who reps YA fiction. It's easy to accept the query that's exactly what you're looking for and the author already had a bestseller. Most of us on this forum will fall into the middle.

The "I'll re-read these pages in the cold light of day" pile may also be the "My assistant screened the queries and these are the 5% of queries that seem promising" pile.

ABaden:
Tabris,
Thank you for you input. Keep trying is the only way to "maybe" get there.
