So, I've had quite a few rejections as many of us have had with our stories. Recently, I got a partial request and a full one from two different agents. I was ecstatic, sent my MS out, and waited. Sometime later, I got replies. They were rejections. As you can imagine, I was heartbroken. But from what I've gotten, I'm trying to see what common issue there might be or if it's just taste as the industry can be very subjective. From what I see, I'm guessing it's not a craft issue? Here are the letters and tell me what you pick from it. My MC is not the nicest person, and idk if that might turn them off. Then again, my betas haven't had issue with him and he does change during the novel. And there are plenty of not-so-nice MCs in other published books. Please, let me know what you think from these letters.
Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to consider the manuscript for " ", and for your patience while I did so. I had the chance to read through it, and unfortunately I don't feel I'm the right fit for this project. I think your voice is compelling, and I was extremely intrigued by the premise, but unfortunately, I didn't connect with your MC as much as I hoped I would. For this reason, I found myself disengaged from the narrative as a whole, and have decided to pass.
Thank you again for the opportunity to review your work and good luck with other agents.
I enjoyed my read of these chapters - you have a great concept and are a talented writer. But much as I liked the pages, I unfortunately didn't fall in love, so I'm going to thank you for the opportunity and step aside.
I wish you the best of luck as you find a home for your MS.
