Form rejection from assistant, no addressing your name, book title, nothing. Another one of those agents that says they are too busy to take on new clients, so then why not just be closed to queries? So ridiculous.

"We deeply regret that the demands on our time are such that we are unable to represent your project.

SNR 06/07/2017 form letter rejection

"Unfortunately, you have come to us at a time when we are inundated with requests for assistance and representation. The need to allocate our time effectively forces us to decline participation in many worthy projects, and I regret that must be the decision n this case as well."

Perhaps if they are that busy, they should simply close acceptance of all queries. But I read this as not "NO" but rather "NOT RIGHT NOW."

Rejection from Claire with a compliment for my "pitch", which was very much appreciated. Obviously disappointed to get a rejection but a personalized one that complimented the pitch was nice, told me I was on the right track.
