Very polite "not a good fit."

"Sounds like an interesting project, and an important subject, but I'm afraid I'm going to pass on looking at more. My client list is very full, forcing me to be extremely selective about taking on anyone new at the moment."

Form Query: 7/6/20
Confirmation email: 7/6/20
ER: 7/6/20

60 K Motorcycle Club Romance, first in series.

The rejection was most likely form, but very kind:

I'm afraid, though, that after reading your letter, I just didn't feel strongly enough to ask for more, and I firmly believe every writer needs an agent who is passionate about their work. Much of this boils down to personal preference, so please bear in mind that what isn't right for me might be right for another agent. I encourage you to continue querying and working on your next book.

I wish you the best of luck and much success with your writing career. And, most importantly, I hope you stay safe and healthy!
