Thank you very much for sending us your query, which we have now reviewed.

Congratulations on the progress you’ve made with your work. Writing is such an arduous process; you are to be commended on your achievement.
Unfortunately we don’t believe your project is right for us at this time. As you know, this is a business of opinions and ours is but one, so please don’t take this note as a disappointment. We do very much appreciate you thinking of us, and wish you the best of luck finding the right representation elsewhere.
A question. Wouldn’t they have to have read the work previously to KNOW that it had, in fact, made progress? Just wondering.
