Thank you so much for thinking of me for your project, >> Title <<. After digging in, I'm afraid it doesn't sound like a fit for me at this time, and so I will have to pass. I wish you the best of luck in your search for the right partner for your work.
Sincerely,

She isn't very nice. She requested and then rejected my MS and then went on twitter asking for manuscripts with the exact same theme (it is a very specific theme and is rare in books). Not professional.

Polite decline. Word count too long.

'Thank you so much for thinking of me for your project. Upon taking a look, I'm afraid it far exceeds the typical word count for a project in this genre, so I will have to pass. I wish you the best of luck finding the right representative for your work.'

Does indicate she may not have read past the first line of the query as that is where the word count is written.

"After taking a look, I feel your premise is too similar to other recent projects in this genre. Because of this, I have concerns about the ability of this project to stand out in a crowded market. I'm sorry to pass here, but wish you the best of luck finding the right representative for your work"
This seems a bit ironic coming from someone who notes that, if you want to wow her, you should give 3 to 5 realistic, recent, and relevant comp titles.

I appreciate the fast response and the criticism — which, while not positive, is certainly something I can think about in revision.
