"Thank you so much for giving me a chance to consider your project. I've read your query and your sample pages, and unfortunately this doesn't feel like the right project for me at this time. I'm so sorry, but this is a pass for me.

Please remember that this is a highly subjective industry, and what doesn't work for me may be exactly what another agent loves. It only takes one yes to get you in the door!

I wish you the best of luck in your search!"
