I got a HILARIOUS rejection letter. It is a form letter, but its my favorite response so far, other than the personal advice I have been given. The humor was worth the rejection, though then I more wanted him to be my agent.

His Publisher's Marketplace page looks like random nonsense. His web site is half finished. The footer and the agent profiles still have placeholder text from the template they used. Also, the footer is inconsistently applied across the web site. The address listed on the front page is different than the address listed on the agents' individual profile pages. It looks sloppy and unprofessional.

Pt 2 of form rejection:
Please don’t give up or become discouraged. There are many opportunities out there. We want you to succeed even if it causes us to kick ourselves for letting you get away. Thank you for giving us a chance.

Sincerely, Jeffrey H. Herman

PS: I realize this might be a very late response. If so, I apologize for the unintended discourtesy. Perhaps you have landed a deal by now.

[I particularly like the PS--because it's only been a month since I queried him, and yes, I had indeed found an agent in the meantime!]

EReject 11/29 in a very nice form--which I'll have to post in two parts due to space limitations!

Your submission was reviewed and we decided not to represent it. This doesn’t mean it won’t be right for another agent or publishing house. Many successful books have been rejected many times for many reasons; sometimes poor decisions are made and my agency is no exception. Like all established agencies, we are only able to represent a small fraction of the many prospects we see.

Due to the large volume of submissions we receive, we cannot write a personal letter to you. Please understand we have not charged you anything. Our compensation is derived from the discovery and successful sale of written works. Therefore, our review and rejection process must be managed as efficiently as possible.

Rejected. But I think this guy is a guru when it comes to the world of publishing. He has a huge book with a listing of agents, which I found at the library and that's how I'd first heard of him. I just hope he actually read my query all the way through before he gave an answer.

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
