I agree with ya Stacey. Most agents don't give false praise like that in a form. Maybe "you're a talented author" at most, but Erica's form letter is pretty unusual. Like, it's "too kind" which deceits the purpose of it being such if it's something she says to EVERYBODY.

i received the same "kind" rejection letter as below. Good points Stacey.

Ugh, really? She tells everyone she was "excited by your query and premise"? I definitely thought that was personalized. That's like false praise. If someones query needs work but an agent tells them they liked it, they may not change it.

Anyone get a different form rejection, though? I know some agents have a handful of rejections set and ready and they choose which fits that query the best. I would be okay if that's what she does. If the premise sounded interesting just not for her, use this form. If the voice was strong but the premise less so, use that form etc. But if she says the same thing to every query... I do not like that at all. Kind form rejections are one thing, but to say you liked the same specific thing to every person who queries you... that's something entirely different.

Same form letter as everyone else. I honestly prefer the 'colder' form letters. The ones that make it sound like they cared and then turn out to be forms make it worse for me :(

Her form R: I was excited by your query and the premise of your book. It’s clear that you’ve devoted a lot of hard work to this project, and your passion comes through in your writing. However, while there is a lot to be commended, I struggled to connect with the manuscript in a meaningful way, and therefore don’t believe that I would be the most effective champion for your book.

Please remember that the publishing industry is subjective, and another agent or editor may feel differently. I’m sorry I don’t have better news for you, but I wish you all the best on your road to publication.
