I hope you are doing as well as can be during these unpredictable times. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to consider your project. I carefully read and consider each submission I receive, and I will have to respectfully pass.

Agenting is subjective, and while I couldn't take on your project, another agent may well feel differently. I know your work is important to you and I thank you for thinking of me. Wishing you all the very best with your writing.

Best,
Laurel
