Hmmm – why don’t I believe them?

AXXXXXX LXXXXXXX would like to thank you for introducing us to your work.  We regret to say that we aren’t the best match for you. Please rest assured that, although this is a form letter, we are using it simply for the sake of expediency and that your submission was carefully read and evaluated.

Having the right agent is an important relationship—as important as author and publisher—and our decision is very subjective, which is why we encourage you to try other agencies.

We wish you every success in placing your material with someone who is as committed to it as you are.

Best regards,

Blah Blah Blah
