a nice rejection, albeit standard
Aside from the spelling error, and god forbid I had a spelling error in my query, this is standard but with a feel good nuance.
Dear Ms. Ashwin
Thank you for giving us the chance to consider Literary Licensce.
Though I found much to admire in your writing and creativity, after careful consideration I feel that this project is not quite right for the agency. The fiction market is extremely tight these days, particularly for new or unknown writers, and I don't feel your book quite met the extremely rigorous standards needed to be published in today's difficult market.
As you know, however, these decisions are highly subjective and another agent or editor may have a completely different opinion from mine.
Again, I thank you for giving Martin Literary Management the chance to look at your work.
