Prompt rejection w/form letter:

Dear ___,
Thank you so much for querying me on XXX. Unfortunately I don't feel I'm the appropriate agent to represent your work as the project just isn't right for me.

Please know that this note doesn't speak to the quality of your work, and I am only one agent among many. I wish you the best in finding the right representation and hope the next agent connects with the material.

Thanks again for thinking of me.

All best,
Elana

Although my book wasn't a right fit for her list, I appreciate her fast response and wish all agents did this!
