Very kind and helpful rejection letter. Said she liked my writing but passed on the project and said she would welcome other submissions, so overall I call this a win. Ms. Sinsheimer was very professional and as I said, kind in her letter. It was definitely nice and appreciated to receive a personalized note.

“Thank you for sharing your work with me--and for your patience in
waiting to hear back. You write well, but I'm afraid that I just
didn't have that "Yes! This is for me!" feeling--so I'm going to bow
out.

That said, I'd be happy to hear about any future manuscripts you may
have. Please see further information below.

Whatever happens, I hope you will continue writing and sending out
your work. In case they would be useful to you, I've included a list
of my favorite resources below.

Again, thank you for sharing this with me. I hope this finds you
well--and writing.

All best wishes,
Jessica”
plus info on what to do if sending future work and links to writing resources like other have pasted already.

Thank you for sharing your work with me--and for your patience in
waiting to hear back. Though this is not quite right for us, please
keep in mind that this is one opinion in a very subjective
business--and another agent is likely to feel differently.

In case they would be useful to you, I've included a list of my
favorite resources below.

Again, thank you for sharing this with me. Best of luck with this and
future projects.

All best wishes,
Jessica

EQ 2/5/18 fiction; Shadows Over an African Heart. + first 10 pages of Ms.
ER 3/20/18 This rejection was particularly disappointing since this agency had represented Silent Thunder: In the Presence of Elephants (Simon & Schuster, 1998; a book that I had used as one of my references in researching elephants in writing this novel.
While she didn't detail her reason for her rejection, she did include the following:
Resources (please note--you may have mentioned these, and if so, I
apologize. While I did consider tailoring each list to reflect what
each person already knows about, that became too time consuming, so
everyone receives the full list):

* ManuscriptWishList.com--a searchable database of what agents and
editors want in their inbox NOW
* ManuscriptAcademy.com--an online conference of on-demand panels,
classes, and one-on-one pitch meetings
* The #MSWL Newsletter--free bi-weekly advice and interviews from
agents: http://eepurl.com/b83sCL
* #MSWL on Twitter--a hashtag where agents and editors post their
interests and book ideas
* Brenda Drake's Pitch Madness pitch events:

EXACTLY a year to the day that I sent my query, I received a rejection. It was a nice rejection that sounded like it might not have been a form, but after reading other comments here it's clear that it was a form (but still a nice one!)
