EQ 96,000 Historical Fiction
Prompt, polite rejection within three days.
Had also rejected a memoir I sent in in August.
Extremely polite. I really wanted this one. Seemed to be sincere and genuine. I'll try Farley Chase again

'Many thanks for writing. You have an interesting story to tell and there's a lot to like about your approach. But in the end I'm afraid I didn't come away quite fully convinced this was something I think I'd be able to represent successfully. I'm sorry not to be more enthusiastic but thanks nonetheless for giving me a chance to review it and best of luck in finding it the right home.'

A strange rejection, short and sweet: :"?I'm just not doing enough, fiction, Craig, but good luck to you with this elsewhere."
But your "About" page . . . . *shrugging shoulders*

"I was able to dive into this right away and as much as there was to like I don’t think I’m the right fit. But you have a great voice and I hope this becomes something for you. If in the event it does not I’d always be happy to consider something else from you down the line."

Well, I WAS feeling better about his rejection letter until I read the comments- nicely worded form letter.

Many thanks for writing. You have an interesting idea for a book and there's a lot to like about your approach. But in the end I'm afraid I didn't come away quite fully convinced this was something I think I'd be able to represent successfully.
