Received the same very pleasant form letter rejection as a lot of the people here
Thank you so much for giving me a chance to consider your work. Unfortunately, I don’t believe I’m the right person to represent it effectively.

Publishing is such a subjective industry; so, please don’t be discouraged. I wish you the absolute best of luck finding an agent who can represent your work with the enthusiasm it deserves.
Great for a rejection. Way better than silence for sure.

Received a pleasant and polite rejection to my 118,000 word SF submission from Ms Strauss after 74 days, saying she was wrong person to represent me but not to give up. Pretty much a model reply for any aspiring writer. Five stars!
