Kind step aside after nudge with offer of rep: 9/27 (I feel a bit bad for giving her so little time to consider my initial query materials but had no idea I'd get an offer so quickly)

9/18/18- Thank you for sharing your work with me. Unfortunately, I feel that in today's market, I cannot take on projects unless I feel strongly about them. I'm sorry to say that it didn't happen with this one. This, of course, is just my opinion and others may feel differently.
I wish you the best of luck with all your publishing endeavors.
