Thank you for your query. While your project does sound interesting, I'm afraid it's not quite right for me at this time. I genuinely appreciate your email and wish you luck finding an agent who can successfully champion your work.
All best,

A form but a nice one :-) And I appreciate her speedy answer!

I'm actually working on an R&R, so I emailed back asking if she'd be willing to take a look in a few weeks instead.

Sent q 28 days ago with no response either way...thinking it may have gotten lost as people who reached out after that have already heard back. Maybe lingering in a spam folder!

update: partial request after 36 days. you never know
