Two form rejections from respected agents have come in over the last few days. These in spite of a query I thought was good. I ask myself again, "Is the query letter weak or have I used a title that somehow turns them off?" Thus far, no agent has even read one line of my manuscript, so I know it isn't that. My gut tells me once again that it's the query. I have only written agents who accept e-queries, and those agents rarely want sample pages or chapters, so the query letter itself is the only basis they have for evaluation. I'm going to reevaluate and rewrite the query letter again. Wish me luck.
