Thanks for your patience while I read ________________________________. Your writing has a great energy to it, and it's quite fun to read! But I wasn't as swept away by the premise as I'd hoped I would be, and so I'll have to step aside on this one. I hope another agent feels differently and snaps you up soonest--if they haven't already. And do know I'd be happy to consider any future projects you may have.

All Best,

Thank you for querying me about your manuscript, THE THIRTEENTH GUARDIAN. I've read your sample pages and your project isn't a perfect fit with my current needs. This has less to do with your strengths as a writer and more to do with my goals as an agent and the trends of the literary marketplace.

I wish you the best of luck in your search for the right agent and publisher. Keep writing!

Disappointed because after five months with the full and a few nudges, I have to mark this as Closed, No Response. Sigh. (I will update if she eventually does respond)
