Form rejection after 14 days:
Dear Candace,

Thank you so much for thinking of Nelson Literary Agency for your submission. Unfortunately, it's not quite what I'm looking for at the moment. I wish I could offer a more personalized response, but do know that we read every query letter and sample we receive. Even though your project is not right for us, it might be right for another agent, so don’t give up!

Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.

"Thank you for sending me the manuscript for [___]. I so appreciated the chance to take a look!
While I found much here to love, I'm having a hard time figuring out how I would position this to break out in the current market and have therefore regretfully decided to step aside. I wish you the very best of luck in your career.
Stay tough out there and keep writing!"

Danielle said she found my sample pages well-written with a strong concept. She has ultimately decided to step aside, but she "thinks another agent is going to be intrigued enough to ask for the manuscript." Very polite; appreciate the response!
