EQ: 5/24/18 It has been 2 months. I see several people have a response in less time so I guess I should consider this a rejection. :(

From her Twitter account 7/23- "PSA: For the first time ever, I've decided to close to unsolicited queries for the month of August. I will reopen on September 1, 2018. Referrals still welcome during this time."

Thank you for your email query. I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work for possible representation, but I’m afraid I’m not the right agent for it. Of course this is only one response, and tastes vary widely among agents. Thanks again for the look, and I wish you the best of luck.

Thank you for your email. I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work for possible representation, but I’m afraid I’ve decided to pass.

Please do not be discouraged as many best-sellers have been passed on numerous times prior to being successfully published. I wish you the best of luck finding an enthusiastic agent and publisher for your work.
