Personal Note: I sent two submissions in because I'd prefer to submit my work with one person. If Shannon likes one and not the other, that's fine. From my last comment, you can see that I've had issues with the email. I decided to email Shannon with a different email address and hopefully this time the email will go through.

The website states: Normally we respond within 4-6 weeks but due to the pandemic backlog, we have been responding a bit more slowly. If you have interest or an offer, please make sure you check in with us so that we can have an opportunity to review and respond.

I sent an email to see if they had received my query. She is *on my list* one of the top five agents I'd like to work with so I also sent a revised query letter on 4/13/2022.

N.R: 4/13/2022

I will edit this if something changes. I may give 6 more weeks then I'll close it and move on.

On an embarrassing note: I wrote down the wrong original query date twice in my email. (lol/cry), I said 2/13/2022. I have a feeling I'll get rejected on pure stupidity. (Covers face in embarrassment.)

Any way...

Email I received on 5/4/2022: Dear Rose,

First, my apologies for the delay in response! I fell behind quite a bit in the fall and am still working to catch up.

Second, your query came through but the body of the email was completely blank. Would you mind sending it again? This time, just email it directly to (Different Email). Thank you! And once again, I do apologize for the delay.

Best Wishes,

Shannon

Personal Note: I'm nervous XD! I thanked her for responding to my email and I apologized for the issue with my email. I'm so grateful that Shannon didn't brush me off, giving me a chance.

Edit: One more thing that I forgot to say; this email was in my spam folder. Check your spam folders just in case. I don't know why it was there because this was the very first time she ever emailed me. I had to mark it down as not spam.

New email 5/6/2022: Hi Rose!

I’m not sure what is going on with our email situation. I received this but once again, the entire body is blank. I’m not sure if it’s my server or yours. I’ve never seen this happen before.

Anyway, to remedy, I’m wondering if it would help to put your query and first five pages in a word document attached to your reply. If you wouldn’t mind, hopefully third time’s the charm!

Best,

Shannon

Personal Note: Has anyone had this issue? We're putting a lot of time into a rejection lol (blush). Anyways, before I get an email back... I just want to say... If you haven't emailed her your query letter yet, you should. Shannon seems like a great person to work with. I've already sent another query letter to her for my new story. I'd query her again with new work.

Received a kind rejection and apology for the delay on 4/18/22. Shannon handled the delay so well that I was pleasantly surprised by the response, though it was ultimately a pass. She seems lovely to work with.

She thanked me for my patience and for nudging her back in February; she said my query was "intriguing" but not quite right for the list she's building at the time, so she passed. However, she said I was welcome to query her with future projects. I appreciate the response and her kindness!
