The not unexpected R from my query.

Lovely letter from Jill.  LOL, likely to be standard, but at least she’s polite about it!

Thank you for sending me a portion of your manuscript.  I enjoyed reading it.

While your pages are interesting and well-written, I did not connect with your main character’s voice as much as I had hoped, and therefore, I fear that I probably would not be the right agent for this project.

I wish you the best in finding the right agent who can successfully champion your project.

Really, the story was not ready. Going to finish my other project – the one I shoved off the front burner when I won the pitch contest. That story is the one I had planned to be my first to actively be pitched and queried.

Tidbits about that one later.  :biggrin:
