We’d worked together previously so the rejection was personal and kind as always. I submitted again to her because she’s the best. One of the top YA agents. She didn’t think it was a right fit because one of her clients is doing something in the same time period/setting. Landing Suzie is tough, and I imagine she’s got a big list now. But if she connects with your project, you’ll hear from her.

She updated her Tumblr to say she read and responded to all queries sent by 6:30 pm on 6/29/18. Hence the CNR. No hard feelings! Onto the next agent.

NOTE: Suzie updates her Tumblr page to say where she is with queries so we know when to CNR. (https://suzietownsend.tumblr.com/)
As of today, she's up to 6:30 p.m. on June 29. Wouldn't it be great if all "no reply means no" agents did this?
