Not heard anything yet, will hold off a bit
justlikethediet - judging from some of the comments below, I reckon you could re-query after a month? Seems like some queries don't arrive at their destination!

No response. I'm beginning to think it got eaten by the spam folder, since she seems to reply in under two weeks. Is it too early to nudge, or should I wait until the beginning of December?

Nudged at 68 days after no response; received a nice note saying she hadn't received the initial query, plus a form rejection of the material. All in all, I'm glad I reached out. Better to know than not!

Same form rejection letter mentioned in another comment.

I had an e-critique with her before over my first 10 pages, query, and synopsis, and she did mention it's best to cut the word count to 80k or lower for YA.

she is great, and if she doesn't get back to you, resubmit - i waited for a long time, contacted her and she had never gotten my first query! then everything ran quickly :)

Andrea just liked my #PitDark pitch but rejected me last week... this industry is so odd, haha. I am not resubbing, but I thought I'd share! Don't give up y'all!
