EQ: 1/16/18
ER: 1/17/18 - Very much appreciate the quick response even if a form letter.
75K - Upmarket fiction

Thanks so much for sending your query – I appreciate the chance to take a look at your project. I’m sorry to say, though, that I’m going to step aside instead of asking to read more.
Please bear in mind that everybody has different tastes and interests – my decision is based on my present workload, and also based on the kind of material that I’m presently representing. That said, this is a crazily subjective business: I absolutely think you should keep looking for representation because what works for one agent (or publisher) may not work as well for another. I’m afraid, though, that I cannot recommend someone for it.
Very best of luck!

EQ: 9/25
ER: 9/25 (3 hrs later)

A form rejection that tries to be helpful without actually being helpful lol, and is unnecessarily long-winded.

He seems lovely though, even though it's a form and not as personalized as it sounds.
