I guess his responses are personalized but I dunno, still a form, really.

"Thanks of thinking of me but I didn't connect as much as I hoped so will step side.

Another agent may well feel differently.

Best of luck."

Military memoir.
Helpful rejection, and very nice.
Here's what he wrote:
"Thank you for thinking of me for this.
I represented an excellent memoir set in Afghanistan last year and despite my best efforts got nowhere with it. There is a certain amount of fatigue with this category at the moment and publishers are very jaded.
I am not telling you to stop looking, merely pointing out an obstacle.
But because of my experience, I am stepping aside.
I wish you the very best of luck."

I queried him a month ago and still haven't heard back. Wondering if I should resubmit or not.
