Whant do yo do when...

So I got a response to my query for Legend that says the reason said agent is turning it down is because 120,000 words is too long for a debut author. Mine is 95,000 words.
She did say she likes them around 80,000.

I know 120k is too long. Maybe 95k is long sometimes, but that's 25k difference.

Oh well.

Moving on to another agent.

You go girl. There are tons of agents out there!

If you get a chance, stop by and enter my contest for a Nanny McPhee DVD, electronic catch phrase, and a $25 Target Gift card.

I think 95,000 is reasonable...blah to her!

Yeah, if it were at 120k, i'd understand.
I wonder if she was looking at someone else's query at the same time.
I know they are swamped. :)
