Rejected in 2 days with what appears to be an encouraging form letter:

Thanks for your query. Unfortunately, I do not feel that I could be the best advocate for your work. Please keep in mind that mine is a subjective business, and an idea or story to which one agent does not respond may well be met with great enthusiasm by another, and I encourage you to continue writing to agents. Hopefully you will find someone who will get behind you and your work with the conviction necessary in the current market.

Best wishes.

Sincerely,

William Clark

10-16-2017 query through online form, literary fiction
10-19 Request for a 50 pg sample to be sent by post
10-23 Sent sample;
11-21 Nudge with offer
12-11He apologized for late reply and said if I hadn't yet engaged an agent he would read.
I did not ask him to read further, as I had a second offer, but he wrote on 12-20 saying he'd read and would like to see more...
But I accepted the earlier offer.

Raphee, I'm only guessing, but since their form doesn't actually ask for a query letter, I'd say that the "summary" from your query letter would work here. Good luck.

What does this mean in the Query Form:
Summary *
Briefly describe your project, indicating what makes it unique and compelling.

Do we send in our regular query, or do we need to have some other format? Say give a description in overall terms with a brief mention of characters and story(I mean shorter than our usual query).
