"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to consider X. I'm afraid this isn't right for me, in part due to your word count of 150,000. Even though this is Science Fiction your word count should be below125,000. I wish you all the best in finding a good home for your work."

I wish I looked through the comments first or I wouldn't have bothered. She seems really hung up on arbitrary word counts. I understand she's trying to dole out wisdom, but I don't really appreciate anyone telling me what my book "should be"--especially when major publishing houses have put out 200k+ word books in the past six months.

Basically a form rejection, but with the personal touch of specifically addressing my word count:
"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to consider THE WHITE HART. I'm afraid this isn't right for me, in part due to your word count of 175,000. In Fantasy, submissions should be in the 100,000 word range. I wish you all the best in finding a good home for your work."

10/8/19 - Offer of Representation!! Yay! I have a few fulls still being read, but I'm excited. Will decide in two weeks. Eva seems super nice and enthusiastic.

10/18/19--I received another offer of representation and ultimately decided to go with the other agent. Eva and I hit it off on the phone, and I think I would have enjoyed working with her, but the other agent has a stronger track record in horror. However, Eva got glowing endorsements from her clients, which made it a tough decision.
