Nice rejection letter. Thank you for letting me review your query and sample material, which I read with great interest. Unfortunately, I’ve determined that I am not the appropriate agent to represent this material. In this very competitive market, I’m simply not enthusiastic enough about my ability to sell this work to offer representation.

I wish you the best of luck placing this successfully. Thank you, once again, for letting me consider it.

Dear Author,

Thanks so much for letting us take a look at your materials, and please forgive me for responding with a form letter. The volume of submissions we receive, however, makes it impossible to correspond with everyone personally.

Unfortunately, the project you describe does not suit our list at this time. We wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher for your work, and we thank you, once again, for letting us consider your materials.


Sincerely,

Michael Bourret

Informal, cold 'Dear Author' pass. Agency also does not pass the queries to each other, despite saying they do.
