12 days, the same form reject as others. It's just a *very* nice form.

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!




Sincerely,

Danielle

Sounds like the form rejection is just nice:

@elisahansen - doesn’t sound like the form letter I got. Sounds personalized and promising!

I couldn't tell if the rejection was a form letter or not, but it was nice. 110k Contemporary YA:

@elisahansen Yes, you got a nice personalized rejection. Mine read:

Thank you so much for thinking of Nelson Literary Agency for your query. We 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! We are also sorry to have no agent recommendations to offer.

Good luck!
