"Thank you for taking the time to send me your work, and I can clearly see the creativity and passion within it. I have read your query for PHOENIX FLIGHT and as intrigued as I am with the premise, it is just a bit too close to another project I have in the works. While I know this is never the news querying writers want to hear, I hope you take heart in your story and I wish for you to find a good home for it.

If in the future you have another story you would like to share with me, I encourage you to send it along."

Had a lovely personalized response to my full. Indicated how much she loved the premise and voice, but needed to work on line by line writing. Ended with saying that if I ever return to this project in the future she would love to see it again!

"Thank you so much for sending along your project and for considering me as a possible agent for this work. I have so much appreciation for every writer in this process who trusts me enough to read through something so important to them.

I spent some time thinking about the potential of your story and my own expertise in relation to a potential partnership. I read each query with my own list in mind and specific genres I have a need for, and at this moment, I truly believeI am not the right agent for this project at this time. I am currently looking for a few specific stories, and this one isn't quite what I know I can take on right now. This isn't to say that your work isn't incredible and wonderful, but it is to say that I know I can't bring it the level of enthusiasm and passion it deserves.

This is a subjective reaction based on my preferences and current wishlist. I sincerely hope you continue to pursue your writing with other agents who rep more widely.

Thank you for querying me. I hope you find a home for this soon!"
