Elle just posted this on Twitter:
“Heads up: I will be closed to queries Saturday, June 12 - Sunday, June 20! Please re-query when my inbox reopens, or feel free to pursue one of my excellent agency colleagues.”

I still have not received a confirmation of receipt that everyone else reports...I sent a new email 3.30 with a revision as well as a check-in because of the no receipt email and still nothing.

I wouldn’t expect this to follow the “expected” timelines as it doesn’t follow general word count expectations. Good luck everyone!

6/9: I sent Elle an additional follow up to let her know I have another manuscript ready to query. I don’t feel this is necessary, and I don’t want to bog anyone down with unnecessary emails, but I’m planning on querying her colleague. Based on an answer I got from Lauren Spieller on Twitter, it should be fine to query another agent at that agency with a different manuscript as long as 3 months has lapsed and I let them know.

No response from my initial follow up at this time, but I assume things are busy for Elle at the moment.

4/20/21 still nothing, but another agent at Triada nudged her as well because she's interested but can't consider my book as long as Elle has it. Hopefully this will speed up the process a bit.

I was referred to Elle Thompson from Uwe Stender, so I was a bit disappointed.

Thanks @the_new_kid and @DaisyWeb! I've seen advice both ways re: original or new thread, so I just picked one lol. I'm thinking I maybe needed to delete the word "query" from the subject line instead of just putting "submission follow-up" in front of the original subject. Probably got caught in a filter.

@dancingdove311, wanted to let you know I did NOT receive an auto-response when I sent my nudge via original thread, OR my re-nudge via new email on 5/10. I think agents know we're all doing our best to "do the right thing" so I agree with @the_new_kid- just re-nudge and clearly explain your concern when she opens. Good Luck To All!
