@bluedreamwoman I got that "on the fence" message too. I figured it was a form rejection, but just thought I'd check here. Looks like it is.

form R July 23, 2017

In the rejection, she said she had been "on the fence" ; still it read like a form rejection. Have others had form rejections from Diana Finch with the phrase "on the fence"? I am thinking it is probably her way of being encouraging while passing.

Thanks scottclyerly. But she is only closed to fiction queries. I've updated her genres to represent that.

EQ 10/24/16 Diplomatic Immunity, though she's closed.
CNR 12/15/16--no word from nudge. Will retry her when she's open next year, if I don't hear back from her.

Update: ER 1/2/17 on 5/10/17 (Passed, not the right agent.) I'll try her with something else later this year.

On website: The agency is closed to both adult and YA fiction submissions while we catch up on our reading and on queries from the Washington Writers Conference. We'll reopen to fiction submissions in late June; please check back during the week of June 27th.

Yesterday I requeried Diana Finch with Chain Reaction and heard back from her today--not the best agent.
