Rejection Letter #2

Today, I recieved my second rejection letter, which I sent to Sara Megibow at Nelson Literary Agency. I will certainly give this agency a strong kudos for their efficent response time. I sent the email query yesterday, and they responded in less than 24 hours. Here’s what they had to say:

Dear Author:

Thank you so much for sending the Nelson Literary Agency your query. We’d like to apologize for the impersonal nature of this standard rejection letter. Rest assured that we do read every query letter carefully and, unfortunately, this project is not right for us.  Because this business is so subjective and opinions vary widely, we recommend that you pursue other agents. After all, it just takes one “yes” to find the right match.  

Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.

I had high hopes for this agency, so this rejection was a harder hit than the last one. Fortunately, there are plenty more agencies out there, so I’m going to dust myself off and keep plugging away. And start writing book 2! Hurray!

    Panaura I got the very same. They say they read every query so they must have read mine in five mins in the middle of the night . The turnround would have stunned superman. Take the view that if they can’t be bothered to read your stuff they are not the agency for you!!
