A fellow author, Anita Davison, has received a very nice rejection letter (her words). The agent she sent her work to, didn't think her proposed historical novel was "quirky" or "edgy" enough, though she liked Ms. Davison's writing. Now I don't exactly know what this might mean, and Ms. Davison doesn't, either, but she should take heart. Few authors ever get such "personalized" rejection letters. I imagine she's doing something right. And I wish her more success in the future!
