"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."

Picture books are listed in her genres here, but she doesn't mention them anywhere on their website.

"You are a strong writer with an engaging voice and I found much here to love. That said, I have regretfully decided to pass on offering representation. I just didn’t get that “must have” feeling and, because I am careful to keep my client list manageable, I am being very selective about the number of authors/novels I take on. I’m sorry not to be writing with better news, but I wish you the very best of luck in your career."
