Thank you so much for thinking of Nelson Literary Agency for your query. We wish we could offer a more personalized response but on average, we receive 500+ email query letters a week. Do know that every query letter and sample are read and even though your project is not right for us, it might be right for another agent so don’t give up! We are also sorry to have no agent recommendations to offer.

Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.

Sincerely,
Kristin Nelson

Personal rejection. I had submitted to her before and done R&R before she finally passed on the MS. Nice note even if it was a no. SHe's great.

Dear _________:
Thank you so much for your patience. I had a chance to take a look at your query letter and sample pages. I know it’s not much fun to receive a rejection but despite a strong concept and solid writing, [TITLE] isn’t right for me. Persevere as another agent might be intrigued enough to ask for the manuscript, and I’m sorry I can’t offer a referral.
Stay tough out there. Keep writing!
Sincerely,
Kristin Nelson

Pass 19 July, very polite R letter. Apparently she passed to a colleague so they could look as well, but both declined. Quick and professional!
