Very kind form letter, and I am so grateful that she took the time to send this response even two months later (which is probably well beyond the CNR date). Would love to submit to her again, if I have another manuscript that fits her wish list.

I’d even forgotten I queried this agent. As they say, worry not, authors. Wherever we are, these rejections will surely find us.

To Wondering, yes! She let me know right away that she'd received it. And like Vshaia, I got a receipt for the original query. I think it's time for you to check in, as well. She seems really nice, so I don't think you have to worry about reaching out.

For those of you who submitted requested materials to Susan, did you receive any confirmation that your materials were received? I sent additional PBs and summaries of WIPs to her on 7/06/21, but have not heard anything. I ran across a comment on a different site from someone who received a confirmation email after sending requested items. (Looking at Susan's timeline, it appears that she rejects some of the requested materials soon after receiving them. For the rest, she seems to take months to respond. The only quick yes I saw involved a competing offer of representation.) Wondering if it's time to follow up. Thanks!
