I just received a rejection on my full and they said it was too long. They also said that fantasy is not "selling" right now, so they would have a hard time getting an editor to look at it. My questions are - is that just another way of saying that they didn't like my ms., because if they did, they could have had me cut things, right? Also, is fantasy not selling? I just read an article in USA Today that said it is on the rise.
Not every agent is as up to the minute on what's selling as the estimable Miss Snark, and the devotion of Snarklings who read the news. Query someone else who doesn't have their head in their ...turkey.
