Thank you for your submission of XXX to our agency. We have read your work carefully and believe you have much to be proud of in your writing. However, it is with regret that I must inform you that we do not feel your submission is right for our agency at this time.

We currently have a very full client list, and consequently we are limited in taking on new authors. For this reason, we must take on only those projects about which we feel most passionately, and unfortunately, we didn't feel your project would allow us effectively to represent you. We wish to express admiration for your work, however, and wish you the best of luck with its future. And please remember that taste is subjective; I hope you find another agent whose opinion of your work overrides mine. Thank you for considering our agency.

Looks like the Sanford is gone from the name.

He is listed here as an agent.

Bes, did you try his PM page or his link? Maybe they're having problems with the website. This is from GLA: Email: Snail mail: Nicholas Ellison Agency, Affiliated to the Sanford Greenburger Agency, 55 5th Ave., 15th Floor, New York, NY 10003. Does this help?

His website link goes to a dead page on the Greenburger website, and when you go to the agent's page directly on the site, there's no contact info. I'm moving Ellison down the priority list until I find out more info. Does anyone else know what's going on here?

Help! I just sent a query plus all of the attachments to Mr. Ellison, and got a failure notice. It said I needed to add a HELO or EHLO to the address???

Anyway I tried it a second time, and got the same failure notice. However, when i checked in my folder of sent emails, both of the failed emails were in there! Now I don't know If he received my email or not...

Anyone have a clue about what might have happened?

10/21, I requeried Mr. Ellison via his assistant. I've sent him my query and nudged him before my requery, since he never got my mail. I nudged him two weeks ago and got no response. Unless I've heard from Mr. Dubner on my status, it's NR for now.

1/18/12: Requeried Chain Reaction. Belatedly, 4/8/12, closed/no response. Forgot to update this profile, this spring.
