ER: I'm sorry, but your project does not sound like a fit for me at this time, and so I will have to pass. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries.

I wanted to let you know I love your story and your writing is terrific. Unfortunately, this doesn't fall into the traditional romance and I don't feel I'm the right agent for it at this time.

6/18/17 Dawn wrote and asked me submit my partial. The online form showed the partial was successfully uploaded. There must have been some technical challenges.

Within 5 minutes of filling out online form, was rejected. Highly doubt anything was read. Just rejected very quickly. :(
