Rejection on 1/25/24: (I think slightly personalized): Thank you very much for sending your query for XXXXX

Unfortunately, this didn't appeal quite enough to my own tastes to inspire me to offer representation or further consideration of your project. While I would like to respond to everyone with constructive criticism, it would take an overwhelming amount of time and energy.

I do want to emphasize that the publishing business is highly subjective, and that there have been many instances where a project I didn't connect with has gone on to find critical and commercial success. I appreciate the opportunity to get to know more about you and your work, and wish you the best success in your journey to publication.

All best,
Valentina Sainato
