    Good about responding only means they respond at all. I've got a spreadsheet listing sff agents by responsiveness but all that means i s you get form rejections, mostly. It is VANISHINGLY rare to get personalised rejections IME, even on partials and fulls (the latter is based on what friends have told me).

    I think my query is decent (I hope that doesnt sound like a brag). I am estimating I will end up with a 10-15% response rate at best. Either way, I've had NIL feedback on the query -- agents simply dont tend to give that.

    It sucks but it is what it is.
