19 day rejection
Thank you very much for submitting your material "Oxx" to us.
Our agents have now had a chance to look at it and we are sorry to say we don’t feel that we can offer you representation. Because of the high volume of submissions we receive, unfortunately we are not able to give you more detailed feedback than this. However, these things are very subjective and someone else may well feel differently about your work.
Thank you again for letting us take a look at your material, and we wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher.

Form letter, "wish you luck", from "Submissions AM Heath & Co Ltd". Rejection came back about 2 weeks ahead of the "six weeks" they stated it would take. Probably didn't get much past the initial reader. But getting a response is a bit better than not getting one. Also, I classed this as a bit of a longshot.

Personal Note: I did get the confirmation that my query was sent. I sent two queries for two different "books". I did that because I'm hoping to find an agent that would like both however if that doesn't happen, I'd hope that they would like at least one. *Fingers crossed am I right?* I did also explain that, while I'm not trying to rush them... I just want to make sure they received it. I had problems in the past with sending my query letter. The agent explained that they never received it so I had to resubmit it. They could have emailed me my rejection letter *covers face* and I never received it. If anything changes, I will edit this. Good luck all! I hope your submission process is successful.
