Thank you for your submission, which I have carefully reviewed but must decline. Unfortunately, due to the volume of queries I receive, I am unable to respond to them individually.
I hope you will not be discouraged by this reply—as with all readers, I am limited by my own subjective preferences, and so I imagine other agents will feel differently. I wish you the best in finding the right match for your work. If, however, you end up querying a new project in the future, I would of course be happy to consider it.

With warm regards,

Step aside: I got a really lovely email from Peter today, saying that although he enjoyed the book he didn't have the right editorial vision for it. I'm sure anyone would be lucky to work with him! :)

@maitley79 I did - and the last time I queried him I did get an auto reply. I'll ask about it on twitter. Maybe there were too many words in the subject.

Hmm, @SaraCo, you might consider tweeting him to ask? Did you send your query to (That's where I sent mine and where the AutoReply came from.)

EQ: 4/1/17 (MG Contemporary) Received auto-reply within minutes stating: "Peter Knapp responds to all children's and YA submissions sent to him within approximately 10 weeks, so please do not follow-up before that time unless the status of your submission has changed such that you need a more immediate reply."

davenport: I think he just has a lot on his plate this week. He does so much. Plus we all have lives beyond this, right? Looks like you and I are next up. I don't know about you, but I would prefer he doesn't feel rushed when reading mine. Good luck.
