Thank you so much for thinking of Nelson Literary Agency for your query. I wish we could offer a more personalized response but on average, we receive 500+ email query letters a week. Do know that every query letter and sample are read and even though your project is not right for us, it might be right for another agent so don’t give up! I’m also sorry I have no agent recommendations to offer.

Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.
