"Thank you so much for sending me your query for [Redacted], and thank you, too, for your patience. It’s taken me much longer to read queries and submissions this year than I’d hoped.

Unfortunately, I'm afraid I must pass on this project; while there is much to admire here, I’m having to be very selective about the projects I take on, and 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."

“Hi #amquerying, an author just checked in on their query w/ me so I thought I'd update everyone here, too: I still have queries and fulls dating back to late spring (May-ish) that I haven't read yet/made decisions on.”

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,

Standard rejection letter. Appreciate quick reply, though.

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.
