I call thyself rejection, cause what else can I be?
Dear Mr. Roman,
Thank you for your submission to ————. We enjoyed taking a look at CLOCK & HUNTER—it is a well-written, suspenseful tale—but unfortunately we did not connect to it as deeply as we had hoped and therefore we are unable to offer representation at this time.
As a small agency dedicated to providing our clients with the highest standards of representation while still seeking new authors and artists in a targeted way, it is all too often the case that we must turn away many talented individuals. The decision to accept a new client is one we take seriously, as we must be wholeheartedly committed to and enthusiastic about each and every project we represent.
Please keep in mind that ours is just one opinion, and we encourage you to continue pursuing your passion for children’s literature. We think you are a writer of great possibility, and if you continue to seek representation, we would be happy to see more work from you in the future.
We appreciate your interest in ————-, and we wish you much success in your writing career.
