I'm fine getting form rejections, but man, the "Dear Author" salutation where they couldn't even mail-merge my name feels really rude.

Couldn't tell if it was a form reject or not, as my MS hit specifics on her MSWL.

Took five months to reject my full manuscript with a form e-mail.

Not impressed.

UPDATE: Got an actual rejection 11/5/18, form letter

Website said to nudge/requery after 8 weeks, which I did with no response. It's now been 10 weeks, so I'm going to go ahead and assume it's a pass.

Not 100% sure if it's a form or not? She talked about my work and characters by name, but her comments were relatively generic, so it's hard to tell. I'll go ahead and assume it's not a form, though.

"Dear Author" form rejection. The worst kind.

Form Letter

Thanks so much for letting us take a look at your materials, and please forgive me for responding with a form letter. The volume of submissions we receive, however, makes it impossible to correspond with everyone personally.

Unfortunately, the project you describe does not suit our list at this time. We wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher for your work, and we thank you, once again, for letting us consider your materials.
