Dear [my name],

Thank you for sending us your query. We are unable to ask to see your work as we can only review and take on a few new projects each year. We wish you all the best and thank you for thinking of us.

Congrats ForNickles! On 3/21/16, I've queried Wales Lit with Chain Reaction's requery. I've nudged her on Friday and heard back today--a pass, since they don't rep thrillers. But I've queried it as commercial fiction.

So excited about this one!! She has another writer on her client list who is similar in theme (which is rare for the type of book mine is) so I really thought she'd be the best agent. Mostly been corresponding with Neal. He's been emailing back and forth with more questions. Haven't had an agent do that yet on a FR. Don't want to get my hopes up but this would be fantastic.

Dear Remember123,

Thank you for your note. We must pass with appreciation on the chance to read more from XXX; we’re glad you thought of us for your novel but we are working on many client projects and this has limited how much new work we can see and take on. We wish you all the very best with your writing and everything else.

All best,

Elizabeth Wales
