I appreciate the speedy response. Form rejection, but nice: "Thank you so much for writing me about your manuscript. I’m stepping aside, but please do feel free to query one of my TBA colleagues if you like. I do appreciate that you thought of me and wish you the very best luck finding the ideal agent for your work.

All best,
Molly"

All of my communications with Molly have been lovely and her feedback on my manuscript was really helpful. I’d absolutely recommend querying her!
