“Thank you so much for thinking of Nelson Literary Agency for your submission. Unfortunately, it's not quite what I'm looking for at the moment. I wish I could offer a more personalized response, but do know that we read every query letter and sample we receive. Even though your project is not right for us, it might be right for another agent, so don’t give up!

Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.

Sincerely,”

Thank you so much for thinking of me for your project. I found your query and sample pages well-written with a strong concept. I have ultimately decided to step aside, but I think another agent is going to be intrigued enough to ask for the manuscript.

Good luck with all your publishing endeavors!
