Fantasy -- 86K

Dear NAME,

Thank you for giving me the chance to read your work.

I admired the ambitious premise; however, I'm afraid I wasn't completely drawn in by the opening chapters.

This is of course, a subjective opinion.

I wish you the best with your writing and thank you for thinking of me.

Note for those submitting to Catherine: she seems to get to emailed queries a little faster than form queries.

Kind rejection - I get the impression hers are modified templates. Mine said she admired the ambitious premise and quality of writing but wasn't drawn in by the opening chapters.
