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.

Although I received a rejection, Ms Knight was kind enough to offer an explanation as to why. That means a lot to writers, who are more than capable of accepting rejections and moving on. We consider it a polite kindness. YA, 93,000 wc.
