Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, it's not quite what I'm looking for at this time, so I will have to pass. Best wishes in your search for representation.

Sent a query on 4/27/2019. Will update this when I get a response.

Genre: Dark Fantasy
Word Count: 66,000

I got a rejection email on 5/7/2019. It was about 3 sentences where the literary agent said that it wasn't a good fit at the time. So maybe it is a good sign that I haven't gotten one to rip it apart yet so I guess that is a silver lining?

Form rejection with encouraging PS that it's not my writing, but that steampunk is difficult to market at the moment.

Email query: 4-11-19
ER: 4-29-19 - very polite form letter, same as the one quoted by paddler, below.
Note: I got the rejection on the 29th, but only saw it today - it hit my spam folder! Ouch. :-) I guess I need to check the spam folder more often.

This agent hung on to my query for 31 days with no request and rejected the query without a word. I considers this agent a poor example for all agents.
