Dear <Name>,

Thank you so much for your query. While Rebecca found your concept to be engaging, she doesn’t feel she is quite the right fit for your work. Due to a very full client list, she needs to be especially selective about pursuing new projects.

Someone else may have a different approach that better fits your needs and is better suited to you and your work. We hope you find the right advocate for your projects. Thank you again for thinking of Rebecca, and we wish you the best of luck in finding representation.

All best,

Laura Gruszka
