Thanks so much for letting me take a look at your work, and please forgive me for the brief response. The volume of submissions we receive, however, makes it impossible to provide everyone with detailed feedback.

Unfortunately, the project you describe does not suit our list at this time. We wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher for your work, and we thank you, once again, for letting us consider it.

Used my name!
Thank you for letting me consider --name of MS-- which I read with great interest. After careful consideration, however, I have decided that I am not the appropriate agent to represent your book.

Fiction—YA sci-fi especially—is just about the toughest thing to sell in today’s market, and so we are very selective about the projects we choose to take on in this category. Your writing is good and the worldbuilding captivating, but unfortunately I simply wasn’t able to connect with Alonia as much as I’d hoped. In order to properly represent a novel, we have to really fall in love with it, and although you are a fine storyteller, that just didn’t happen with this one.
Thank you, once again, for the chance to read --name of ms--. I wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher for it.

Sincerely,
Mike
