Dear Monika,

Thank you so much for sending me your query for THE MIRROR. Unfortunately, I'm afraid I must pass on this project; it isn't the right fit for my list at this time.

The publishing industry is subjective, and what doesn't work for me might be just what another agent is looking for. I wish you the best of luck in your writing as you work toward publication.

Best,

Erin Clyburn

Dear Chris,

Thank you so much for sending me your query for THE SHOWING. Unfortunately, I'm afraid I must pass on this project; it isn't the right fit for my list at this time.
