Thank you for sending me your work.

While I thought there was much to admire here, I’m afraid I just wasn’t quite grabbed fully enough to think I’d be the right agent for this.

I’m sorry not to have better news, but do of course wish you all the best in your work and in your search for an agent and publisher.

All good wishes,


My notes: I'm grateful Alex responded even though it was not the news I wanted to hear. :D
Good luck everyone!
For the people who were rejected like I was... Just know... Success doesn't come overnight! Keep trying! Can't wait to read your book!

Super fast turnaround! Less than 48 hours.

Slightly personalized rejection. The agency website states to include if other agents are reviewing the manuscript, so he congratulated me on the requests I've had so far. Pretty much a form for the rest.

Message: "Thanks for sending this over, and congratulations on all the interest. I’ve had a read of the sample pages, and while I thought there was a lot to admire there I’m afraid it just didn’t quite grab me as I’d hoped. As such, and particularly given all the other interest, I’m afraid it’s a pass from me this time. I’m sorry not to have better news, but do of course wish you all the best in your work and in your search for an agent and publisher."
