"I first want to apologize for the long delay in my reply, and I recognize that you may have already moved on. Waiting is one of the most difficult parts of this business, and I'm sorry that it took me such an unusually long time to respond. I really appreciate the opportunity to consider TITLE, and I wish I were writing to you with better news. Unfortunately this project is not the right fit for me, but it may very well be perfect for another agent. This industry is so subjective; please don't think this pass reflects poorly on your work. In order to be the best champion for a project I need to fall completely in love, and I'm just not feeling that connection here. I wish you the best of luck in all your publishing endeavors, and I hope this project finds the perfect home soon, even if it can't be with me."
