Posted to Twitter today, "::peeks up from book hangover::
After 10 days of nasty covid, I’m dedicating most of this week to catching up on reading & editorial. If I owe you an email, I’ll be back at it soon. Thanks!"

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.

I apologize for the form reply & batched email, but the volume of queries I receive means that individual replies are impossible. This is the only way to ensure that every query gets a timely evaluation and response, and I appreciate your understanding.

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

All my best,
Victoria Marini

Pretty ironic. I was rejected via a "bcc" email.

@Kaylee2222 @aurillian Belated, but I only got the basic querying inbox autoreply when I sent my full, too (sent 3/4). I'm working on an R&R for a different agent right now and plan to nudge when I'm finished if I don't hear from her first.

@Kaylee2222 @alibryn honestly I wouldn't worry about it! If you don't hear from her within three months you can nudge and always update the subject line then! Sorry not to be more help.

@alibryn @aurillian I sent my full 3.9 and haven't gotten a further response. I also had checked for a separate email, didn't see one, and replied back to what she'd sent to me. I did not edit my subject line which was silly, but it was my first ever full request and I got too excited to think properly haha. I received the same auto-reply as before, nothing personalized.
