Just sent my query but I forgot to link all my art!! I hope she still looks at it, or should I send a separate query? I'm relatively new to this.

A note on the submissions page of her agency states, "Note that at this time, she is accepting queries only from illustrators and author/illustrators."

Queried on September 16th.
Formal rejection on November 17th.
The form mentioned that she was backlogged.
To be honest I CNR'd after 4 weeks. I tend to do that, just wait longer if I want to query another person at the agency.

Interesting story: Another agent at the same agency, who I'd queried over a year ago just sent me a formal rejection a few days ago. It was a year later. And she also mentioned being swamped. They seem to be very busy in general.

Form letter, but a super nice one apologizing for the lack of personalization

chibichibi, a writer forum I belong to has her listed as an agent who autoresponds when a query has been received. That info could be a year old, however.

Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, *** is not quite right for me, so I am going to pass. Given how subjective this business is, I am sure there are others who will feel differently. Best of luck as you continue to make those connections.

Wishing you much success on your journey,
