Rejected in 2 days (literary fiction). Exact same form letter as some others below,. Nice tone, quick rsponse.

Hi (My first name),,
Thank you for reaching out about this project. The premise is intriguing, but I’m sorry to say that I’m going to step aside. Unfortunately, I'm taking on very few new projects right now, and I don't feel that I could give this the attention it deserves. Please know that the decision is not a reflection of the merit of your work. You’re a talented writer and your project deserves to be in the right hands. I wish you the best of luck with it.
Sincerely,

Jamie Chambliss

And, yes, folks, this is a form, albeit a very nice one, and I appreciated the positive approach:

Thanks so much for reaching out about this project. The premise is intriguing, but I’m sorry to say that I’m going to step aside. Unfortunately, given my current workload, I don't feel that I could give the project the attention it deserves. Please know that the decision is not a reflection of the merit of your work. You’re a talented writer and your project deserves to be in the right hands. I wish you the best of luck with it.

RQ 10/30/19 - Lovely letter about my writing and how she thinks I'll get an agent "in a heartbeat." Ah, if only that were true. She's handling too much memoir at the moment. My timing = not so good.

Jamie gave a gentle, thoughtful and professional "no" that actually energized my query search. Best to Jamie as she is the kind of agent that I hope to partner up with in the future. Maynard Hurley

@kstjarre and @desert_rain : I think, like most agents do if they actually personalize, she begins or some of what she says is part of her form (heavy workload, intriguing premise, not a reflection of your work), but the rest of what she says is definitely personalized. She's refreshingly personabe, warm, and kind, rare to get that in correspondense with an agent!

@kstjarre no, just one sentence about balance of projects is similar, but other than that she actually talked about my characters and that it was a difficult decision, so it was not a form
