Sent Emily a query 10/09
Waiting on reply for 145k suspense, thriller, sci-fi.

While I wait, and I encourage y'all to do the same, get the mailing list together for pre-launching. Update your blogs, twitter, face-pages, and other social media memberships you're a part of. Maybe even become members with the slant of your author status. Clean your profiles of unwanted advertisements and do some networking with those you're linked to. Not pushy but letting people know you exist and are a positive individual. Make it easy on your future agent, will ya? Set-up your website or do your research for what website provider you'll use and supplies you'll need to accommodate visitors. Maybe some merchandise designs from your links of networking communities. Myself, my brother, and daughters happen to be well established sought after artist, and graphic artists. I got lucky. Start marketing initiatives and pre-launch ideas for success.
You see, the thing is that agents know the business, but they can't do ALL the heavy lifting. Your books are, and will only be, as good as your continuing effort. Here's a tidbit for you guys. Fifty Shades of Grey was a self-published novel based on a fan fiction dialog for Twilight lovers. The writing was poor, BUT... the fan base was already there. She had done her marketing and became a success. She was an Indie author, y'all.

I sent a query on July 8 and nudged on October 8 to withdraw my query due to a R&R I received. She responded very promptly and apologized for being so behind in her queries so don't give up on a response if you haven't heard back from her yet! :)

9/4 Personalized rejection w/request for my next project.

There were special circumstances here. I saw on her mswl and twitter what she was looking for, realized that my current MS perhaps fit one half of what she was after that my current WIP met the other. I personalized my query and left her a tweet and she responded almost immediately. She's not dead set on the current MS but did request a partial anyway. When I get her next response I'll let y'all know how it goes. She's very kind and enthusiastic.

Thank you for your patience while I considered your submission. I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to review your work. Unfortunately, it is not right for my list. I held onto it because I was intrigued by the concept but ultimately I didn't fall in love with the opening pages. However, I wish you the best luck in your search for the right agent (and hope to see you in print soon).

This is the thing about her form reject: If she holds onto queries because she's "intrigued", but then already knows if it's not an immediate yes then she's not going to offer - why bother to hold on to it?
