1/10 - Submitted 86K historical mystery via email
A few minutes later I received an auto reply stating that she will "be away from my desk and checking my inbox intermittently until Jan 12th." She doesn't say specifically that she's closed to queries, but a tweet posted today says that it's her last day of vacation.

A lovely (tho kind of semi-form) personalized rejection, wasn't for her but gave nice albeit subjective feedback.

" list is now entirely focused on adult projects, so I no longer take on anything in the middle grade or YA space. Good luck to you in your journey! I hope you connect with someone fantastic."

Lucy sent me a personalized email and mentioned she merely didn't feel hungry for pages after reading over the query. She noted that, with the number of submissions she receives, she is extremely selective. I appreciated the personal touch.

Lucy replied within an hour! She let me know she wasn't seeking any YA, so it was a pass, but the quick response is amazing!

06/23/2021 - nudge about full manuscript request from other agent (I read that she doesn't like it when someone sends her an offer of rep with two weeks to read your ms, so I thought it safer to let her know that I got a request in case the other agent offers.)

06-23-2021 - Good thing I followed up, even though she doesn't need the update about full requests. She had totally missed my query and just replied, apologizing and asking for the full. Sent it.

Following up on previous comments, has anyone verified if this agency has the one query speaks for all the agency policy? I'm not completely sure by the wording on their website
