Not sure if this is a form...

"Thank you for allowing me to consider your work.

I wish I could send encouraging word as to the marketing prospects for LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR through this agency. While it is clear you are a writer of talent, I simply do not feel confident in my ability to place this project on your behalf. With regret, I must step aside.

Of course, this is just one response in a business where opinions always vary. Another reader may well feel differently. All who are involved in trade publishing know of many instances where such has been the case.

?All the best of good fortune with your writing."

Queried on referral in July. Lit fic, 89,500 wds
9/25 received response from agent Jessica Errera. Meg Ruley passed my query onto her because the project is more in her wheelhouse, but she rejected. It was a friendly and complimentary yet form rejection.
