Thank you very much for your query, which we have read with interest. Unfortunately, the project does not seem right for this agency, and we are sorry that we cannot offer to serve as your literary agent.
We also apologize for the form rejection. The sheer number of queries we receive prevents personalization in order for us to respond in a timely fashion.
We wish you all the best in finding more suitable representation, encourage you to query widely, and thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your work.

kitbuddy: It doesn't prove ANYTHING! I have no idea if your premise or story is good or bad, but one agent's instant rejection DEFINITELY doesn't prove it. Don't let that stop you!!

She has one of the best Query Manager forms I have ever come across. Her questions are right on target.

Oof. Was really hopeful on this one! Ms. Stringer sent a lovely personalized note explaining that while she found the writing very strong, the setting was a bit too dark and violent for her particular needs - basically, the horror overtones aren't her thing. She suggested I reach out to agents who rep both fantasy and horror, and offered to send along the notes she'd jotted down while reading the ms (I will of course take her up on that). Bittersweet - I'd really love to work with her, but it's very nice to get a complimentary note like that.
