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,
Danielle Burby

NLA's website said they would reopen at 9:00 a.m. EST today, so I took them at their word and sent Ms. Burby a query at 9:45! (Her Query Manager page was open and allowed me to submit.)
