I received this letter within just a few days of submission.

"Thanks so much for sending along the sample pages of your book. I’m sorry to say, though, that I just wasn’t as completely drawn in by the material as much as I had hoped. What with my reservations, I’d better bow out. Thanks so much for contacting me, though! I really appreciate it and wish you the best of luck"

@ekseaver, she's probably still considering it! Sometimes she takes a while to respond. Could be because you're in a maybe pile, but I think hold out until 60 days at least before nudging.

It appears she has responded to other people with rejections who queried after me. Should I nudge, or could she still be considering it?

ER: 12/16 - like what everyone said below, definitely a cut and paste rejection. But still kind nonetheless.
