Web site says to be patient...auto-closed by QT after 4 months. Some people get forms within days, some never hear a thing...it's a random and exasperating business.

Kind form letter rejection:

Thank you for allowing me to consider your work.

I wish I could send encouraging word as to the marketing prospects for NINTH & HIGH through this agency. Regretfully, I just don’t feel confident in my ability to place this work with a publisher in this competitive market.

Of course this is just one opinion in a dependably subjective business. Another reader may see immediate possibilities.

Please accept my best wishes for success with your writing.

Thank you for allowing me to consider your work.

I wish I could send encouraging word as to the marketing prospects for LEFT HANGING through this agency. Regretfully, I just don’t feel confident in my ability to place this work with a publisher in this competitive market.

Assuming it's a form letter. Including "I just don’t feel confident in my ability to place this work with a publisher in this competitive market." Fair enough.
