Form rejection. See below:

Dear [my name],

Thank you for getting in touch. We have considered your proposal carefully and I am sorry to say that it is not going to be one for us.

We realise that our fast reply may seem harsh. However, rest assured that we read submissions as and when they come in, and this enables us to respond quickly both to writers we want to take further and those we don't.

If you would like an assessment report on your manuscript, we recommend Daniel Goldsmith Associates www.danielgoldsmith.co.uk. They give an honest, comprehensive and constructive review on fiction, non-fiction and children's literature.

Additionally, we recommend Blue Pencil Agency http://www.bluepencilagency.com/ for an in-depth editorial analysis of your work by industry professionals.

House of Editors is a group of award-winning and industry-leading editors, mentors and writers who have helped prize-winning writers polish their novels http://houseofeditors.com. I recommend them for anything from a manuscript assessment to mentorship.

Many writers, published and unpublished, find it useful to join a writers' group. Writers' groups are an excellent place to share work-in-progress and hone your craft. It is likely that a writers' group meets somewhere near you. In London, we can recommend Collier Street Fiction Group, made up of writers seriously pursuing publication. Find out more at their website https://collierstreetfictiongroup.com/. Many writers’ groups meet online, as well, if you are not able to join one near you.

I am sorry not to be writing with better news; of the thousands of manuscripts we receive annually, we do, in fact, only request a handful in their entirety.

I wish you every luck with finding an agent elsewhere.

Best wishes,
Sarah

I received a rejection letter from a woman named Sarah who recommended several for profit editors and manuscript consultants. Just FYI. Watch out for this.

Ok Soren. But it depends on the genre for a debut author's word count and for the agent to sell it well enough.

KristenH, while in principle you are correct, remember that standards are a fickle thing at best. A book must last what it must last; THAT, my dear, is the true standard any self-respecting novelist must abide by. Always.
Agents and publishers that deny this maxim are fools whose opinion is worthless, for they know nothing of literature.

Ok Zion. Good luck to you. It's best to err on the side of caution, though sci fi and fantasy novels tend to be higher than 120K. I never heard of him. Maybe I don't need to cut 20K for two of my old novels, when they won't be my debuts though. But I'm going with what i've read for publishing standards these days.

5/9/18: EQ 5/7/18 (2nd/final requery Venom)--same day rejection (not a good fit)
