Form rejection received the day after I submitted. I see that I am not alone. I appreciate the honesty and for contributing to my education on how this works.

Thank you for letting me review your query. Unfortunately, I don't believe that we are the appropriate agents to represent this material. In this very competitive market, we are simply not enthusiastic enough about our ability to sell this work to offer you representation.
