"Thanks for sending this my way! I'm not enough in love to offer representation, but I wish you the best of luck with it and feel free to query me again in the future."

This seems to be a different form than others on the thread have received... interesting

Historical Fiction - 90K

Thanks for your patience while I read this and thank you so much for sharing your manuscript with me. I enjoyed the read – you’ve got a great voice here, and I really liked the concept, but in the end, I just didn’t fall enough in love to be able to offer representation. But of course, these things are a matter of personal taste, and another agent might feel differently. With regrets, I’m going to have to pass.

Does anyone get a confirmation of a query? I sent one in late June and have heard nothing.

Although form letter, Rena is so positive about writer’s works. Met her in person and she was very lovely. Anyone would be lucky to work with her.
