I got the same rejection below ("such an intriguing premise" and passing with "regrets"). It's a very kind form, but now I'm bummed because i thought it was personalized. Turns out everyone gets it.

Form rejection letter. Thought I at least had an “intriguing premise” going for me until I realized she opens all her rejection letters with the same empty compliment.

@QueryByNight--thanks, that's what happened. I sent the full on Mon and got an email from her on Fri confirming receipt. :)

@Bibliophyl - I got a receipt when I submitted a full (but there was a very slight delay of a few days).

Does anyone know if she confirms receipt of fulls? I got an auto-response when I sent the query and my follow-up email, but didn't get anything when I replied with the full.

Hi XX,

Thanks for submitting!

I read your pages for [Book], which has such an intriguing premise. However, I didn't quite connect as strongly as I would have liked. I'm passing, with regrets. It's not a craft issue so much as that gut feeling I rely on when deciding to ask for more. I truly believe another agent will feel differently, so please don't be discouraged. I wish you all the best in your search for representation.

Linda offered me rep and we spoke extensively about the Gallt & Zacker and her submission process. She is one of those agents who gets so excited about an author's career and works tirelessly for her clients.
I ended up going with my first offer of rep, but I 10/10 recommend querying Linda, she is absolutely amazing!

She thought the story was really cool, but something in her gut wasn't giving her peace about taking it on.
