Nudge with offer of publication: 5/22/2024
Kind step aside: 5/23/2024

Thanks so much for keeping me in the loop, and congratulations on your offer of publication! Although I can definitely see what drew [PUBLISHER] to the story, given the timing, I'm going to have to step aside. I wish you the best of luck as you take this next step in your publishing journey, and look forward to seeing [TITLE] in bookstores someday.

Thank you for the opportunity to consider your query for (title) Although you have an intriguing premise, ultimately, I'm afraid I don't think it's quite right for my list at this time and am going to have to pass.

On 2/29/2024 I received a rejection from Ms. Burt. I am commenting because the email was kind and also showed that she had read the material I submitted.
It was a refreshing change to the form rejection letters.
