Thank you so much for your submission. Unfortunately I don't feel I'm the appropriate agent to represent your work as the story just isn't right for me. I'm sure another agent will feel differently, and with the vast array of opinions in the industry, I wish you the best in finding the right representation.
Thanks again for thinking of me.

ER 1/5 - She was gracious enough to send me a slightly personal rejection explaining why it didn't work and why it did.
