I'm not sure how to reply. I received a nice rejection based on my projects having been previously published. However, none of the projects I submitted to Ms. Savannah Brooks nave been published yet.

“Thank you for sending me your query for (the book title), but I'm sorry to say the material isn't a fit for my list at this time. The premise here is really strong, but I'm afraid I didn't fall in love with it the way I need to in order to take on a new project. Be assured that acquiring an agent is a fickle business; just because a work isn't a good fit for me doesn't mean another agent won't love it. Thank you for the opportunity, and best of luck going forward.”

Submitted a picture book and in her rejection she said she takes on serious picture books such as books about, politics, mental health, grief, etc.
She continued to say that she sees the need for whimsical stories but that she isn't the one to represent them.

I couldn't find her specifics on picture books and didn't know she only takes on serious ones.

I appreciate your query for ___, but I'm sorry to say your project doesn't fit what I'm looking for at the moment. Please be assured that querying is a fickle business; just because a work isn't a good fit for me doesn't mean another agent won't love it. Thank you for considering me, and best of luck with your future queries.
