Thanks, tabell. I never received an auto-confirm and being 34 days since I queried I nudged. Yeah, I did on 1/30
Finally, the auto-confirm and happy to have it.

Hi karenleespree,

I used the agency contact form to explain my submission (including date sent and title) and lack of auto response. Danielle Chiotti replied to say my submission was received. Said she's working through November and December submissions and I should hear back soon. I bet your submission went through, too, so I'd sit tight.

Seeing this:
"If your submission is received by our system, an automated response will be emailed to you." I sent 22 days ago and never rec an auto-response.
Should I resend?

Rejected after 39 days; liked the premise but not the "narrative voice" (unclear if it was the protagonist's voice or the overall narration as it is 3rd person); invited to submit future work, but most likely won't because as stated in query letter, all my other projects trace back to this one as well. Nice to get SOMETHING other than a form letter, I guess.

I see below that Ms. Chiotti's 2016 form pass appeared rude to some people. She's changed it for 2017. :-) Polite as polite can be. And I did not receive an auto-reply.

YA Paranormal, 90k

Dear (My Name),

Thank you for querying me about your manuscript, (Title). I've read your sample pages and your project isn't a perfect fit with my current needs. This has less to do with your strengths as a writer and more to do with my goals as an agent and the trends of the current literary marketplace.

I wish you the best of luck in your search for the right agent and publisher. Keep writing!

Kindest Regards,

Danielle Chiotti
