Query sent: 02/02/22
Sent polite nudge: 04/09/2022
Query Tracker marked the query CNR, but I received a response on 08/29/2022.
Personalized rejection: Ms. Varnado felt the concept was "promising" and the submitted pages were "very well-written", but the content was not suitable for her for a few elaborated reasons, and so she had to pass.

Though the response was a longtime coming, I do sincerely appreciate the feedback and constructive criticism. I understand the staggering demands of an agent, being swamped by hundreds of queries. Thankful for the personalized feedback, a rarity in these days. Thank you, Ms. Varnado.

"Dear Chris,

I apologize, but your project does not sound like a fit for me at this time, so I will have to pass. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries.

Said my 66K-word YA novel was a little short for what she was looking for, just as a heads-up to anyone thinking about querying here.
