Seems polite and well meaning, but be warned that she tends to change her mind after showing enthusiasm for an idea and asking for proposals. Video game books are a harder sell for her than they once were.

Rejected three days after submission- at least it was a trifle more personal than the norm: "You deal with an important topic. But it isn't right for me."

Very quick and kind response to query one day after submission:

"Thanks for trying me with your book project. I'm sorry to pass as it sounds intriguing and eye-opening but I'm over subscribed with creativity books at the moment and this one doesn't sound quite right for my current mix. I wish you the best publishing success."

Thank you for sending me the proposal for YOUR BOOK. It's a fascinating story especially with the current [state of the world]. But I think it would work better as a narrative (maybe through working with a journalist) than a memoir, telling the story of the early days of [industry]. So it's a pass from me. But thanks for giving me the chance to review. I wish you the best publishing success with this.
