Form rejection in a little over an and polite.

Thank you so much for your query. However, this project doesn’t sound right for our list. I encourage you to continue to submit elsewhere, and, I wish you every success in your writing career. Thank you again for thinking of me and of this agency.

Best regards,

Can't find a web site for this agency. Therefore, putting on my do-not-query list. Unless anyone has a better idea?

I'd e-subbed in November with no response. Today I emailed Christine LeBlond, who had responded in detail to an earlier submission. Ms. Schulman responded twice - once to say there was nothing in November from my email address, then a second time to say it may have gone into her spam. Either way, she wasn't interested:)

Received this rejection today after I nudged her with a memoir. Bottom line, be sure to nudge:

I did a quick search on Outlook and this is the first email received from your address above. Otherwise I would have responded within one week to your initial submission. In any case, I have now reviewed the query letter and a few pages of the manuscript. I admire your story which will I think be of interest to many women. However I no longer work in this area of memoir as publishers have cut back their lists and don’t acquire them unless truly exceptional or by a writer they know and have published. I don’t want to discourage you however and do wish you all the best with your writing career. Susan Schulman

@kotobuki - I agree with Galen_Marek. It just means the agent isn't interested.

@kotobuki It means nothing. Form rejection. It's just not what she was looking for. Nothing personal. Scratch her of your list and move on.

New at this. Susan Schulman was first choice...rejected within three hours, no opening/greeting, and encouraged to continue to submit elsewhere. What does it mean? (Form: "doesn’t sound right for our list.")

Sent e-mail query on 7-31-16 (a Sunday!) and got rejection in about 2 hours. Website was under construction when I went to it, so queried on the off chance as thought they were listed for children's picture books. Rejection basically said "thanks, but not for our list."
