@WhiteGardenia - I agree. It makes it seem more legitimate if a location is listed somewhere. However, I read through the About Agent section and it looks like they are probably based in Denver. One agent is listed as living in Oregon. I've found in the querying process in the past that many agents work & live away from the Agency's location.

Does anyone find it odd that a literary agency does not disclose their location? Even in their "Contact" info on their website?
I dunno, this concerns me.

Thank you for submitting your query for WordServe’s review. We appreciate the chance to consider your novel, which is compelling and well written. Unfortunately, we are extremely limited in the number of new clients we are currently taking on, and must be more selective than ever. Ultimately, this wasn’t quite the right fit for us.

Slightly customized form rejection.

Said it was "unique and well-written," but not a good fit for them. Onwards and upwards.

Thank you for submitting your query for WordServe’s review. We appreciate the chance to consider your novel. Unfortunately, we are extremely limited in the number of new clients we are currently taking on, and must be more selective than ever. Ultimately, this wasn’t quite the right fit for us.

We encourage you to continue seeking representation from other agencies, and wish you the very best with your work.

Seemed like a form letter, though she did reference the story idea as unique and original.
