Replied the next day! I think I got a different version of the form letter because I'm author/illustrator -

Thank you so much for sharing your book with me, I truly appreciate your interest. I've had a chance to review and consider your work and can see how much you've invested in this. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm the right agent for this particular project, so I must pass. But I send this with gratitude and all good wishes for the future.

My very best, Susan Hawk

I have to assume CNR 6/19/19...

Curious at her high response rate yet as of 6/17/19 I'd heard nothing.
Wondering whether to nudge, try another agent at Upstart, or assume not interested?
