"Thank you so much for sharing TITLE. I so appreciate the opportunity to read more of your work. I'm afraid that I don't think I'm the perfect fit for this particular project. So, I'll bow out.

I wish you all the very best!"

Thank you so much for giving me a chance to consider your work. Unfortunately, I don’t believe I’m the right person to represent it effectively.

Publishing is such a subjective industry; so, please don’t be discouraged. I wish you the absolute best of luck finding an agent who can represent your work with the enthusiasm it deserves.

Dear Rose Ann,

Thank you so much for giving me a chance to consider your work. Unfortunately, I don’t believe I’m the right person to represent it effectively.

Publishing is such a subjective industry; so, please don’t be discouraged. I wish you the absolute best of luck finding an agent who can represent your work with the enthusiasm it deserves.

All best,
Rebecca Strauss

Note: it did take some time but that was fine. It didn't take that long for Rebecca to get back to me. I would query Rebecca again. Thank you for responding to me Rebecca. I appreciate that.

Positive words: Arnold Schwarzenegger was rejected for a very long time. Now, look at him! Never give up.
