She's recently closed multiple queries that were submitted around the same time mine was. I was about to nudge her per agency guidelines (following this wonderfully helpful tweet on nudge etiquette: https://twitter.com/LauraRSamotin/status/1389615870268354561) but I realized she's likely not a good fit as she seems to look for more romance than my novel has to offer. Closing as a "no response".

@nickoleen, I submitted via hotmail. Did not get a bounce back but no confirmation either. :-(

Did anyone using Hotmail have problems submitting? I got a bounce back like it's rejecting hotmail for some reason.

Very polite and personalized rejection. Stated that the pacing left her wanting more, but thinks I'm very talented and would love to receive any future queries from me.

ER 4/15/21 - intrigued, but story is not quite right for her. Very nice and polite as others have said.

Not yet @BySarahJane. I'm assuming she's really busy. I still have my fingers crossed for both of us.

@CarolynYoung,
Have you heard back from Ms. Snow about your partial? We sent ours on the same day and I haven't yet heard back. As the per comments below, I sent a polite nudge earlier this week and haven't heard yet. Fingers crossed!
