Thank you very much for sending me your query and thank you for your patience as I considered it.

While this is definitely the kind of project I am interested in, ultimately I wasn’t as taken with your manuscript as I need to be in order to fully get behind it, and so I’m going to pass. I must remain extremely careful to only acquire projects about which I am wildly passionate, and thus I feel it is in your best interest that I step aside and allow you to continue your search for representation elsewhere.

Please remember that this is only one opinion in what is a highly subjective business and another agent may very well feel differently; feel free to query another agent here at Writers House if you think they might be a good fit. Thank you again for thinking of me, and the very best of luck to you in your search for the right agent.
