ER 11/5/17 Received a form rejection, but it was replying to my query email instead of my 'requested materials' email, which was a bit confusing.

Also bcc form rejection, but I'd rather get a bcc with form than nothing.

Thank you for the opportunity to consider your work, but I am sorry to say that I do not think this material would be right for me, and therefore I would not make your most effective advocate. Please remember this is just one agent’s opinion, and there may well be other agents who feel differently.

Thank you for thinking of me, and best of luck to you.

I apologize for the form response, but the volume of queries I receive makes a personal reply impossible.

Thanks @v_fury! Hopefully we're in a "maybe" pile. :-)

@hairaplenty I agree with @Michelle_in_WI that perhaps it's best to keep an eye on her status, and resubmit again only if she specifies she's replied to all queries before XYZ date and you still have no response.

Rather than potentially fill her inbox with duplicate emails, you could keep an eye on her updates and resubmit if the date of your submission has been passed by without response?

@ya_writer I queried on 9/26, got the confirmation email, and also still haven’t heard back.
