7-12-22 Family saga, and got a reject on 8-31-22
same reason as the one that said the publishing industry is always changing... sounded like a form type of reject

Submitted back in December. Got this today, "Thank you so much for allowing The Knight Agency to consider your material. My sincere apologies for the long overdue response to your query- as a consequence of the outdated nature of this response I am passing purely based on the timeline. Should you still be looking for representation I encourage and welcome you to resubmit, and I'll aim to respond more quickly based on the merits of your work. I appreciate your understanding and apologize for not being more efficient in my response.

That's weird I submitted the while signed in to query manager but it didn't show up. I had to enter it manually. Usually does it automatically.

@Mullover thanks for letting us know. Ghosting fulls is a bad look.

Requested full MS from me on Jan. 3, 2022.
Sent full ms Jan. 4, 2022.
Sent nudges through query tracker at 60 days then another at 90 days. No response to either. I found her email last week and sent her a nice personal note asking if she was still interested, needed more time, whatever. After two days with no reply to my email, I withdrew the ms from Querytracker on April 15, 2022.
She did not answer my email nor make any comment on the withdrawal of my ms.
Very unprofessional, in my opinion. No one is too busy to simply write back "not for me."

New Adult/Adult RomCom with magical realism.

@TBtbtp - yes. I submitted in mid December. You can see there are the occasional submissions that get skipped if you click on timeline tab/button. I figure she probably saw mine, but was busy and never got around to rejecting. Or she saw the genre and just isn't interested in that at the moment (even though it's one of her genres) and skipped it.

She may not have responded to me, but she still has a far higher response percentage than most agents.

Their website says the agency strives to respond in 2-4 weeks, but if it seems overdue you can reach out if you desire - "If your response still seems overdue, please do not hesitate to follow up via the link provided when you submitted your project."
