Submitted 3 chpts + 1 page synopsis Feb 2021 - response time meant to be 8-10 weeks. Darley's interests at the moment are very specific, and the agency only pursues extremely commercial fiction that they are confident will make a lot of money so not holding out much hope.

Received standard form rejection 'this is not right for us' mid April.

Dec 2020. A prompt (28 day) reply to e-query. Polite form letter rejection. Historical-Fiction. "Not commercial enough".

This agent does have an e-mail associated with submissions - looks like it's for mysteries & thrillers exclusively!

10/19 - Thank you for your interest in the Darley Anderson Literary, TV and Film Agency, and thank you for your patience in waiting for a reply. I’m sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

Camilla and I have now both read your submission, and while we enjoyed it, unfortunately we have had to concede that TITLE is not right for us.

We receive over 600 submissions a week and can only take on a select number of debut writers every year. The result is that we have to be incredibly selective, so please do not be too disheartened. Another agent may well feel differently.

We wish you the very best of luck.

Best wishes,

Roya Sarrafi-Gohar
