Thank you for sending along your work, which I enjoyed reading. As you know, I was intrigued by the premise. However, I’m sorry to say that the story just didn’t come alive for me on the page in quite the way I was hoping. Surely this is a matter of personal taste, but without greater enthusiasm for this project I think it’s best if I step aside. Publishing is, however, a highly subjective business and I have no doubt you’ll find an agent who loves your work.
