polite rejection: 8/26/2021
Thanks for contacting me about your work and my apologies for taking so long to respond. My existing clients have kept me so busy over the last several months that I haven’t had time to look at anything new, and as a result I’m quite far behind.
Anyway, I’m sorry about that, but I’ve now had a chance to review your note and unfortunately, I don’t think it’s quite a fit for me as an agent. However, I would encourage you to continue contacting other agents about your project, as often it’s just a matter of getting the material in front of enough people before you connect with someone who’ll be excited to represent it on your behalf.
And of course, I wish you all the best of success with your work going forward.
Best,
--David

Hi raktinope,

Thanks for contacting me about your work and my apologies for taking so long to respond. My existing clients have kept me so busy over the last several months that I haven't had time to look at anything new, and as a result I'm quite far behind.

Anyway, I'm sorry about that, but I've now had a chance to review your note and unfortunately, I don't think it's quite a fit for me as an agent. However, I would encourage you to continue contacting other agents about your project, as often it's just a matter of getting the material in front of enough people before you connect with someone who'll be excited to represent it on your behalf.

And of course, I wish you all the best of success with your work going forward.

Got Response on April 19 2021- Rejection Form Letter. He does seem busy, so that's to note. Might re query him at a different time in the year when it is less busy for him.

Nudge with offer of rep 4/13/21
Response 4/13/21 - polite step aside, saying the story sounds interesting but he's very far behind on reading anything new, and his focus is much more on sci-fi than fantasy.

Usually he responds more quickly, but he explained in his rejection letter that he's very busy with existing clients lately and thus quite behind on his query reviews.
