Personal note: To be fair, I sent this query when I first made my query letter so I'm assuming, with the amount of time that has passed it is a rejection. I emailed today just to make sure if my email went through. I've had issues with emails before so I figured I would give it a shot. No harm right? Anyways. Good luck everyone.

Fantasy/Fic: word count 136k

Something Nice to hear: Drink some water, take your meds, make sure you eat and stay on your grind. You're doing great! Keep up the good work!

Edit: So I looked through my spam folder there was an email from the agency with the following:
Thank you for considering Bell Lomax Moreton for your submission.
We do understand the time and effort that goes into crafting a submission, but due to the sheer volume we receive each day we are unable to give a further reply unless we want to read or hear more.
Warmest Wishes,
The Submissions Team

So I'm just going to say if you don't... Please check your spam emails just in case. You never know. This is the second time an agent's email went to my spam folder.
