Received an automatic reply indicating Mr. Sherman will be out of the office until April 1st. I would focus your energies on other agents in the meantime; most queries sent right now will likely be buried.

Thank you for your query. While I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work, I don't feel I connected enough with the material here to be the right agent for it. Please keep in mind that this business often comes down to personal taste, and another agent may feel differently about your project.
Again, thanks for thinking of me for this. I wish you the best of luck finding the right representation.
