Mark33: Agents get anywhere from 200 to 500 queries a week. You're asking them to read your query, and respond personally, to 200-500 emails a week. They only get paid if their current clients earn money. So reading our query letters, and responding to them, not only doesn't make them any money, it takes time away from their clients for whom they are supposed to be working. Can you imagine being a client of an agent who spends their entire week on personally responding to 300 emails of people they can't represent because of genre, current client list, or writing ability? "Why haven't you sold my book, agent?" "Oh, sorry client, I had to answer 250 query letters with personalized rejections." That is why they can't respond in a "more personal manner." I am happy if I get a form rejection, because I know to move on. Some agents don't respond at all if it is a rejection, because of writers like you who give them a hard time for clicking a button and sending form letters so we aren't left wondering. This is a long process. Just mark the query status here as "rejected", select "hide rejections" from your query list so you don't have to stare at red sad faces, and keep going.

I got the "Dear Writer" response too. They cannot respond in a more personal manner? If they're so bad at writing that they're unable to even include my name or their own name, perhaps they're not the best people to be asking to help us with getting our writing published.
