Thank you for sending us this material, which we have now read and considered, but I’m sorry to say that your novel is not something that this agency could feel 100% confident of being able to handle successfully.
However, there are as many opinions as there are agents and publishers, so we wish you all success in finding suitable representation elsewhere.
We also wish you good health during this strange time for us all.

There is a lot in it to like and praise, and it's lively and ambitious; certainly [another] agent and publisher would be better placed than we are to take it on and do well with it, and we would be delighted for you if that proved to be the case.

Finished, professionally edited, 103,400-word historical novel. Slightly niche.

ER: 24 March, from Mary: "Too little information supplied, but unlikely fit for us." Politely worded.

ER 3/19/18 (Passed--not good fit)

EQ 2/26/20 (Requery Venom-adult thriller)

The response received from the assistant reading the submissions was a bit rude, and I was chastised at the end for not including the requested materials... except I had. They were right there in the body of the email as requested.
