@ktwills79, did you submit via the general "submit" @ Levine email address? I don't think I received a receipt notification.

My query just hit 15 days and the average for a rejection is 17. I'm going to CNR it.

Full Rejection: 6/5/2017

"Thanks for sending [story title] to LGR and allowing us the chance to read it. Unfortunately, we did not feel as engaged in the narrative or with the characters as much as we would need to in order to take the project on. That being said, your writing is quite good, and we hope than another agent feels differently."

I appreciate that they were fast!

ALSO! Heads up, folks. I asked Matthew (Kerry's assistant) if multiple submissions were allowed for LGR, and he wrote this back:

"We’re pretty good at sharing things here, so it’s a pass from the agency as well as myself. That being said, if you substantially edit and want to resubmit to me or someone else, you are perfectly welcome to. Also, if you would like to submit another work entirely, please feel free."

So please keep that in mind as you query this agency--a "no" from one is a "no" from all.

@gmabest fwiw, I didn't get one either, so I'd guess not.

I'm curious if this agency sends receipt notifications. I submitted a query last night but didn't get an automated receipt.
