    Rejected my query within three days.

    Time to get back to the drawing board on the query, I think...

    I signed with Marlene in January... excellent interview! She's a very, very sharp lady (and not just because she signed me! ).

    Wow, she IS fast. I got my R in less than one day.
    If I had a signature, you'd be reading it right now.

    Just got a next day R for my partial. I don't think it can get much faster.

    Four days between partial request and rejection. Not bad, although not the result I was hoping for.

    Rejection in about 24 hours. Fast and brutal.

    Sent query at 10:30pm, received very polite partial request at 11:06pm. You can't get much faster than that!

    She rejected a query of mine not long ago within a few days. When I queried her about another project, she requested a partial of mine the next day. I wish more agents were this fast.

    Yeah, she must be on fire today, or something. I queried and got a partial request 7 minutes afterward. Good luck to both of us!

    Well, she got back to me within hours of receiving my partial. It was an R, but a personal R with good feedback.

    14 hours from 50 page request to a personalized rejection. Oh well. Still have 2 fulls out with other agents.

    Hopefully the personalized R was helpful and gives you an idea of something to work on.

    Not really. She said "The story is interesting, the setting is cool; however, I sensed no discernible voice, as if the ms was overpolished to the point of perfection."

    Can't really correct voice. You either have it or you don't. Funny thing is that's what I get complimented most on (in contests most judges say I have a very strong voice). My last agent loved my voice. Guess Ms. Stringer just didn't get mine. But getting a full request from another agent later that day sure took the sting out of it. *G*

    Rejected a requested partial of mine, but suggested the sort of agents I should submit to.
    Perhaps the most amazing thing about the universe is that we could create an infinite catalogue of things, worlds and beings that no one has seen and which do not exist. Each story in the realm of fiction is a small part of that catalogue.

    Requested a partial 13 minutes after I sent the query. That is FAST.

    Can't say that anyone has ever told me my manuscript was too perfect.

    just wondering...

    I was just wondering if the agency is open on Sundays since I sent off my query today. Should I be expecting it later tonight or tomorrow sometime? Thank you! (:

    Most agencies are not open on Sunday, although I know a lot of agents check email, etc. What exactly are you expecting so fast?
