This is my second rejection since sending out my eight query letters in late October. This particular agent who asked for a partial, wrote this:


Your prose is straightforward and clear, which makes for a breezy read. Unfortunately, it does not suit our needs at the moment.Well, shoot. I think this is a nice compliment.

I would dance naked on my porch for a response like that...

Congrats Susan...

Congrats Susan, sounds very promising. I think I see a yes lurking around the corner.

Good luck. :)

It's always a plus to get a personalized rejection, whether for a query or a partial or a full. (Yep, form rejections for fulls are hardly rare, alas.) Yours, being a compliment rather than a crit, is particularly nice.

Any comment on a rejection is a gift. If you haven't done so already, send the agent for a thank you note. :D
