Is this her form letter? Because it's unusually nice!

Dear Trevor,
Thank you so much for sharing this with me, and for your patience in waiting to hear back.

There is much to admire here, but I feel like I'm not quite the right fit, so I'm going to bow out.

That said, I'd be happy to hear about any future books you may write.

Again, thank you for thinking of me. Hope this finds you and yours well.

All best wishes,
Jessica

Back when she was at Sarah Jane Freymann she responded to one of my queries after two months, so I hadn't been expecting to have to CNR here, but I guess that's what's happened.

@LSalt1 Just a heads-up, I'm pretty sure Jessica (and most agents) don't represent novellas. They're a tough sell, especially if you're unagented/unpublished. They're usually parts of anthologies imo.
