Rejection came as a mass form BCC email. I get it, she gets a lot of queries, but BCC rejections are tactless. Puts a sour taste in my mouth for future works I may query.

Thanks @gwprouse! I'll wait until the 8 week mark to be certain. They are both wonderful agents!

@tlcoughlin
The best advice I can offer is confirm if there are any response times on their website. If none or after the dates, then query the other agent with a note saying you had queried Victoria on said date, nudged on this date, and hadn't received a response. That way you are being transparent and have given appropriate time.

No response from #PitMad Nudge/Re-query.

Also received a PitDark like from someone else at IGLA, but was told to not query until I hear back from Victoria Marini. Any suggestions?

@nc_kay, that sounds amazing the relationship you have/had with Victoria. I've forwarded a couple of fulls now to other agents and have only received generic/form response back. So frustrating!

PitMad request for full MS, sent it today Sept 4th!

Update Dec 2nd: Received what I believe is an R&R with some incredible amount of eye-opening feedback. It feels like I now have an entirely different lens I can look through to see the story in a new light. I am extremely grateful for the kind words and guidance as I was at a point where I kept doubting everything from the concept itself to the writing style but no, the issues are of a different nature altogether.

Update June 30th, 2021: After rewriting most of the manuscript, I have now sent the revision!
