Thank you so much for allowing The Knight Agency to consider your material. Unfortunately, after carefully reviewing your query, we’ve determined that this particular project isn’t the right fit for us at this time. As I’m sure you know, the publishing industry changes swiftly now, as do readers’ tastes and trends. As a result, our own agents’ needs shift and change, as well; therefore, we would like to encourage you to consider querying us with future projects as you may deem appropriate.

Thanks again for sharing your work with us, it is always a privilege to be considered.

Warmly,
Elaine

EQ 5/7/21 after #kisspitch request
5/10 helpful & kind rejection:

Thanks for following up to my like. This project has all of my favorite things so I was excited to see it hit my inbox. While there is much here to enjoy I'm afraid I'm not connecting in a big enough way to see the sure-fire "breakout" path at this time. I dont need to tell you how crowded the market is right now and unless I have that immediate "I know how to sell this right this moment" I know its best for me to step aside and allow for a more passionate and visionary partner to step in. I am very thankful for having the chance to review the project. I love your plotting and would love to see whatever you work on next if this one doesnt lead you to an agent partner.

Thanks again for sharing your work with us, it is always a privilege to be considered.
