1/30/23 - polite form rejection (same as others mentioned here)

Her profile says 2-4 weeks response time, but I suppose it's nice to hear back at any point.

7/20/22 - Queried by online form - 86K historical mystery
1/30/23 - Very kind form rejection: "Thank you so much for allowing The Knight Agency to consider your material. Unfortunately, after carefully reviewing your query, we’ve determined that this particular project isn’t the right fit for us at this time. As I’m sure you know, the publishing industry changes swiftly now, as do readers’ tastes and trends. As a result, our own agents’ needs shift and change, as well; therefore, we would like to encourage you to consider querying us with future projects as you may deem appropriate."

Does Elaine Spencer typically just not respond at all? I thought she was a great fit for the work, but I am going to have to move on to someone else. It's been 2 1/2 months with nothing...

SO glad I found Ms. Spencer before she closed queries! When you read about 1,000 agent descriptions to find the one that matches your book, I would have been so disappointed if she wasn't taking queries.

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 My sincere apologies for the long overdue response to your query- as a consequence of the outdated nature of this response I am passing purely based on the timeline.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.
