(NA Speculative Thriller, 135K [yes she specified that one of the reasons for rejection was the word count])

About one month between the query and the full request. Full forwarded to another agent at Rees within 90 days, which I am still excited about. Fingers crossed because I'd love to work with this agency!

Agents have said many times that nudging (unless you do it one day after sending) does not result in rejections. Usually they respond faster to books they're interested in, so depending on their response rate, a nudge will simply confirm you've been rejected because X time has passed and they haven't bitten. In my three years of querying, I've had nudges yield both rejections and requests. You just never know! Sometimes queries slip through the cracks. It happens.

I sent a nudge on a query sent 2 September 2022.

ER: 19 November 2022

Well...I nudged her and she declined... maybe I shouldn't have nudged her. Anyone else hasn't similar things happen when nudging an agent?

You should be able to send a message through Query Manager if you use the link you received when you first queried!

Hi,
I haven't really explored the features of Query Tracker, and I was wondering if you submit a message to an agent regarding a query you submitted before they closed, will they see the message? Or should you try and contact them a different way (through Twitter or email, etc.)?
