MildlyMary - Did you mean to EQ (email query) and ER (email rejection)? FR is full request. If it was a full request, then that is a mighty fast turnaround!

At least I didn't get the "my list is full" line! That one gets on my nerves, too. I think it's true, and I think sometimes the agency insists that the agent accept queries, even they don't really want to. But I am getting low with all these rejections. My book is enjoyable, but you'd never know it from these quickie responses. (I did just get a request for a full today from another agent, so I am a bit more upbeat.)

Thank you for querying me and giving me the opportunity to consider YOUR BOOK. I'm afraid, though, that after reading your letter, I just didn't feel strongly enough to ask for more, and I firmly believe every writer needs an agent who is passionate about his or her work. Much of this boils down to personal preference, so please bear in mind that what isn't right for me might be right for another agent. I encourage you to continue querying and working on your next book.
I wish you the best of luck and much success with your writing career.

Rejected within 24 hours. This agency is kind, courteous, and quick. But after 3 rejections from different agents, time to move on.
