Informal, cold 'Dear Author' pass. Agency also does not pass the queries to each other, despite saying they do.

10/26: Full request
10/26: Submitted with note I'd just gotten an offer of rep
11/2: The nicest rejection letter of all time: "I think I’m probably a 98% match—and that’s just not good enough. For that reason, I’m going to step aside, much as I feel like I’ll be kicking myself later."
