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.

Dear AUTHOR,

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.

All the best,

Rena Rossner

I just read some of the responses here. I thought her rejection was personalized but it's a standard form she uses for all requests that aren't for her.
