Lovely personalized note, bad timing. He loved the premise and the sample but has clients with similar projects and feels he can't offer rep on this particular one.

Emailed him directly since his Publishers Marketplace page said that's okay. Agency sub guidelines are to paste "a short writing sample (1-2 chapters)." My book is written in diary form, with most entries being just a page or two, so I sent the first 14 pages. Hopefully, that's not too much.
