49 days rejection:
Thanks so much for letting me review your materials. Unfortunately, your project isn’t the right fit for me. Since it's crucial that you find an agent who will represent you to the best of his or her ability, I'm going to step aside rather than ask to read more. Each query I read, I do so with my own list, preferences, and skills in mind.



I encourage you to continue writing, editing, and looking for an agent whose tastes and interests align with yours. I’m happy to look at any future projects, so please query me again if you have new projects.

Kind regards,
Paige

Sent my query, but received an auto reply email:
“Thank you for your email. I am out of the office from 8/9-8/22. I will be checking my messages until 8/12 and then will be unavailable until I return on 8/22…”

I’m not sure if this means she is still receiving and reading queries or not. I don’t see any indication that she’s closed, though.

Thanks so much for offering me the chance to consider your material. Unfortunately, your project doesn't seem right for me. Since it's crucial that you find an agent who will represent you to the best of his or her ability, I'm afraid that I'm going to have to step aside rather than ask to represent your manuscript.
Please keep in mind that I welcome queries for exciting new projects from authors who have previously submitted other projects to me.
Thanks for sending your query.
Kind regards,
Paige
