***UPDATE: I reached out to Lori through QM to inquire about the no response and she said since this was a repeat submission it was automatically flagged and arrived in QM. Even though it’s been over a year and mentioned revisions in my query. It’s the same title so I’m guessing that’s why it was flagged. Note moving forward: change your ms title. Revisions aren’t enough.

Has anyone had troubles getting updates from Lori? I just checked my QM link and it says my query was rejected on Nov 7,2022 but I NEVER received a letter. And the rejection letter wasn't uploaded in QM like it normally is. I'm upset that I've had false hope of being on her maybe list this whole time. Has this happened to anyone else?

I just checked QT because I'm also still waiting to hear back, but it says no decision has been made. Sorry to hear that happened to you!

Lori Steel, Red Fox Literary
Thank you for considering Red Fox Literary for your work. While we are generally closed to unsolicited submissions, I am opening for a short while to consider projects outside of referrals/conferences. This window will close on January 1, 2023.

To submit a query to Lori, please complete the form below and please note:
*Lori represents fiction and non-fiction FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS ONLY.
*Lori does not represent YA horror or any "hard" sci-fi (think space and high tech).
*At the moment, Lori is only considering illustrators or author/illustrators, and novels.
*She will only consider PB text if requested at a conference or by referral. Thank you for understanding.
*Please do not submit adult projects. These will not receive responses.
*While she cannot provide detailed feedback, Lori aims to respond to all queries.
*If you submitted while Lori was at RQLA, she is still considering your work and you will receive a reply!
