"After careful review of your query and sample pages, unfortunately, I'm going to have to pass. I'm truly sorry not to be writing with better news, but given my fuller list and the competitive marketplace, I have to be pickier than ever in my decision-making. Please keep in mind that publishing is a subjective industry. Although this didn't work for me, that doesn't mean it wouldn't work for someone else. I encourage you to keep submitting this, and I hope other agents feel differently. Many thanks for the opportunity to consider your material, and I wish you all the best in your search for representation."
