Oh boy. Just sent out a new query to her--now I know what I'll get in return.

5/24--I sent her my query. Today I've got back what WhataWriter had: "not taking any new clients." Will try Samantha next month for Chain Reaction.

1/12/17: SQ 11/2/16 (requery Venom)
SR 1/6/17 (Passed-not accepting new clients at this time.) I'll try Samantha with DI in March.

Recieved a form rejection saying "Not taking any new clients."

@angelscribe, not to worry; may have just been my query. I'm getting NO WHERE with these people.

Query sent 10/9. Got letter today that said they aren't taking any new clients at this time but told me my project looked promising and to resubmit to them after the new year. I guess that's good, we'll see.

I sent her a query via mail on 10/25 and heard back from her today. They're not accepting any additional authors. That was the reason for my rejection.

Received timely rejection, same small, index card sized, photocopy. I have no problem with that. At least, it was a reply.

Would you maybe prefer no answer? Would you feel better if it was nicely engraved?
