"Thanks so much for sending along the sample pages of Survival Mode. 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."

She was very complimentary, but said she found "books in this arena increasingly difficult to place with editors concerned that something feels “overly familiar”. I worry that I’d run into similar roadblocks with this." I'm assuming this means the market is over-saturated? She invited me to query her again with a different project should I still need representation.

Also, I did not receive a confirmation email at initial query.

Hi everyone, I just wanted to ask if anyone received a confirmation email when you sent your queries to Andrea.
I've noticed she's already responding to people who queried in January and I'm starting to worry thinking that maybe she didn't received my query, and I just realized that I never got an auto-confirmation like the one you usually get when querying by email.
