"Thank you for your patience--sometimes the better ones take the longest. Please know I carefully considered your project, but I don’t feel I can offer representation at this time. The marketplace is more selective than ever and I must keep a modest list.

I loved the premise of this and think you are a gifted writer, however, I just didn't fall head over heels in love. I felt the storyline would be hard to make stand out on the current market. This is completely subjective, so don't give up! Please do keep me in mind for future projects. Nevertheless, I wish you every success with [TITLE]!

Keep going with it, there are numerous agents out there that may be a good fit. I wish you the best of luck!"

This is probably the nicest rejection I've ever gotten. She's so sweet. Have been so disheartened with querying lately, but this encouraged me to continue. Thank you, Dorian.

40-day rejection of 69.5 SF/F YA sent in response to SFFpit fave

Kind, thoughtful response. Would query her with any likely project; she seems like a good person to work with

Slightly personalized: "I appreciate the opportunity to consider, however, I'm usually not the best fit for a post-apocalyptic novel." Fair enough.

I got the nicest personalized rejection from Ms. Maffei. It was so kind and encouraging, I would definitely query her again.

Anyone would be lucky to have her as their agent :)
