"Thank you for giving me a chance to consider your work. Unfortunately I don’t believe I’m the right person to represent this effectively.

Publishing is a subjective industry by nature so don’t be discouraged. I wish you the best of luck finding an agent who can represent your work with the enthusiasm it deserves. "
