Query rejection analysis –what does the form really mean?

August 7, 2012

Reading between, over and under the lines in query rejections is a science. Does “not for me” mean “fabulous for another top agent?” Does “good luck in finding an agent” mean “you only need a little luck as the book seems destined for bestsellerdom?”

Or does it mean this:

How about “thank you for considering our agency” from a gatekeeper assistant. Could it really mean “if my idiotic boss would have let me, I would have been able to successfully pitch this to a major publisher.”

 

 

Jane Lebak at  the querytracker.net blog has a great post on query rejections. (Thanks, Jane, for letting me post your cool pix.)

I love this one:
