Choose one of these:

Quizá(s) fue por eso q no supe/sabía qué decirte acerca d lo q me preguntaste.
Tal vez fue por eso que no supe/sabía qué decirte acerca de lo que me preguntaste.

I guess you're aware that you used abbreviations for que (q) and de (d) in the first sentence. I left the abbreviations in.
The only difference between the two sentences is the beginning adverb.

1º quizás sea por eso que no supe decirte acerca de lo que me preguntaste.
2º tal vez es por eso (que) no sabia que decirte acerca de que me preguntaste
Bot phrases are forced and not very understandable. Rusty's options are better.
If I have to choose, I would take the first,because in the second you need a "que", but I did'nt like any of them.
