Personal Note: I have sent a follow-up email just to know if there were any issues with my email. I had a problem with two of my emails going through as blank. Anyway, If anything changes... I will edit this.

Something nice to hear: The one who falls and gets up is so much stronger than the one who never fell. -unknown author

"If you have received no response 8 weeks after the date of your submission, it can generally be assumed that we are not able to take matters further, although we are happy to receive an enquiry email after 8 weeks have passed. If you have had interest from publishers or agents, or there is exciting news on your submission, please let us know."

Many thanks for sending through your work. After consideration, I’m afraid I won’t be offering representation.
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to give individual feedback on every project we receive, but there are a multitude of reasons any agent may pass on your work – similar projects on their list, current workload, can’t see the right route to market, industry feedback on market trends etc. And as with all art, there is a subjective response to writing.
As an author in a fiercely competitive market, you need an agent who can be an absolute champion of you and your writing. Best of luck finding the right agent for your work.
Best wishes,
