ER: 12/20/17
Thank you for giving me a chance to consider your project. I've gone through your query and your sample pages, and unfortunately, I am going to have to pass on ___. Please remember that this is a highly subjective industry, and what doesn't work for me is probably exactly what another agent may be looking for. I'm sorry I didn't have better news for you but I wish you all the best with your search and hope you find the right agent soon.

She seemed really interested in my premise, so it was disappointing that the pages didn’t hold up for her. Always appreciate a quick response though!
