Received standard rejection letter 48 days after initial query:

Thank you for your submission to Darley Anderson and Associates Ltd and thank you for your patience whilst your work was under consideration.

Whilst Tanera was intrigued by the premise, I am afraid that she did not feel quite gripped enough to absolutely fall in love with your concept. 

As an Agency, we feel that it is immensely important for new writers to have an agent who believes completely in the potential of their work to sell and who can therefore take that enthusiasm to the publishers. Accordingly, we need to feel passionately about a writer’s work before we sign them onto the agency. 

We only take on a select number of debut writers every year, so please do not be disheartened. Another agent may well feel differently.

I wish you the very best of luck in finding the agent who will be right for you.

All my best,
Laura Heathfield
