"Thank you for giving the Darley Anderson Children's Book Agency a chance to consider your work.

Unfortunately this is not right for us. We are replying as soon as possible to give you the best chance of finding the right agent.

We receive over 300 submissions a week and can only take on a handful of new writers and illustrators every year. The result is that we have to be incredibly selective, so please do not be too disheartened. This is an incredibly subjective industry and another agent may well feel differently.

We wish you the very best of luck in the future."

Kind form rejection 12/01/23 advising me to query her colleague next year since I'm in the US and she has mostly UK connections

"Thank you for giving the Darley Anderson Children's Book Agency a chance to consider your work.

Unfortunately this is not right for us. We are replying as soon as possible to give you the best chance of finding the right agent. I really enjoyed this but my connections are largely in the UK - I'd encourage you to approach my US colleague Becca Langton when she returns next year, unless you find representation before then.
