Thanks so much for being in touch. I'm flattered that you thought of me for this, but it just didn't strike a chord. I do admire the quality of the writing and the execution and I'm sorry it wasn't a fit for me.

Very best,

The Bent Agency

My spam filter was bouncing her emails back to her, but she sent four--FOUR--emails, including one from her assistant, to get the request to me. I find that unbelievably kind!

Ardenwolfe, not necessarily true. My first agent read my MS the night I sent it to her and offered me rep the next day. Unfortunately, a few years later she quit the biz.
