09/16-met this agent at an event. She was on a how to get published panel. I then was chosen to pitch my book to her and she requested the first 50 pages which I promptly sent on the same day.

Hi ktchenli,
I pulled her genres from the options shown on her query form, where fantasy is listed.

EQ -- submitted through form Jan 16, for literary 100K
ER (via email): Jan 30

I saw all the notes below about the spam filter issues, but I did not have any issues with the form. Maybe the form solved these problems.

Dear [my name],

Thank you for the opportunity to consider, but your project is not for me at this time.

Best of luck and success in finding the perfect advocate for your work.

All best,
Natanya

Hey everyone -- I sent my initial query and it was rejected by the spam filter. I re-read their guidelines and unlike many others, they prefer you attach pages as an attachment rather than paste them in the body of the email.

Once I resent with my chapters as an attachment, and only my query in the email, it went through without issue. Good luck!

My email to this agent did not bounce, but I have not had a reply from her as of yet. I wasn't expecting one yet as I emailed the query on July 24th and it's August 1st. Hasn't even been a month yet. Many of the agents I have queried have not responded at all; some responded with an automated reply that the query had been received, and some have responded with a rejection.

How can she not realize this by now? It's frustrating to spend so much time querying one agent, and not even know whether it was received or not. I never heard back from her, and it's been nearly 3 months since one of my queries went through.
