Quick response and super nice!
"I’m sorry to say, though, that I just wasn’t as completely drawn in by the material as much as I had hoped. What with my reservations, I’d better bow out. Thanks so much for contacting me, though! I really appreciate it and wish you the best of luck. "

Vivian, their website says not to query more than one HK agent *at a time*, so I'm taking that as you can query another one after the first one passes. I got a pass from one months ago, so I have just queried a different one at the agency.

I have no idea why I queried her, to be honest. I had every intention of querying someone else in her agency. She sounds like a great agent, but I she does have a full list and probably isn't looking to add anyone.
Does anyone know if the agency is "a no from one is a no from all"? I kinda want to query someone else in her agency, since she passed on my stuff.

@purpleteacher111 I would. That's long enough that it's completely appropriate to 'nudge'

Opinion question. I submitted my query to Ms. Somberg back in the beginning of June. I noticed that most people get responses within a week or two. Do you think I should follow up?
