A reader sent in this query rejection series from a handful of terse agents:
"Thanks for your query, but I'm not the right agent for your work. I sincerely apologize for the impersonal nature of this reply which is due to the large number of queries I receive each day. "
"I'm going to pass, but thanks and good luck."
"Thank you for your inquiry, but my roster is full and I am not taking on new clients at the moment."
"Unfortunately, I am not the right agent for your work. However, do not despair as I am sure another agent will feel quite differently."
To the last rejection, our reader added: "Really? Who?"
