Thanks so much for thinking of me with this project. Unfortunately, it doesn’t match what I’m looking for at this time. This is an incredibly subjective business, so I encourage you to keep submitting this and I hope other agents feel differently!

I actually got an R&R from this agent. In the end, she still rejected my manuscript, but she was polite and sincere about it. Thusfar, Carrie has been the most pleasant agent I've ever interacted with despite no offer of representation.

Graciously bowed out on 9/3/19 after deciding that she didn't have enough time to get to my manuscript. Whoever works with Carrie should be super excited! She's so kind and sweet!
