@sandranicholls Since they're closing for the holidays, my guess is that they're either catching up on queries or not responding until January. When did you query them?

I queried when this agent was open for queries, and never received a response.

I think Kristin is my most-queried agent. I'm currently 5/5 form rejections, but what's the harm in trying for 6?

Queried 8th October
Full Request/Notified of Offer 11th October
Request sent 12th October
Bow out 18th October : She really enjoyed what she’s read but she didn’t think the genre right for her list.
After seeing the passion of the two other agents offering, I kind of already knew I wouldn’t go for Kristin if she offered. I have a wariness, it seems, of agents with very long client lists that’s filled with many big authors. I wouldn’t want to get lost and forgotten amongst them! The offering agents work with big agencies but have smaller client lists so this all worked out great.
