Date of Rejection: 24th May 2014
Response Time: 15 working days (3 weeks)
Rejection Type: Form, no further request.
I was better prepared for the rejection note this time and I wasn't so upset as I was with #1. This agency was one of the less specific ones I've chosen and I approached them more for their wider experiences than because they are known to produce a lot of fantasy titles.
The form letter was a little softer than the first and - though, of course, I know it IS just a standard response - it left me feeling a little more optimistic about my chances elsewhere.
It probably took a little longer to hear back because the submission was sent through the post, rather than email.
