"Hi, thank you for your query, and for your patience! I've taken a look and unfortunately I do not hold the right amount of enthusiasm in order to move forward and therefore, must pass.
I wish you all the very best as you continue to grow as a writer and encourage you to keep writing! If you ever find yourself pitching something new, you are welcome to re-query me.
Thank you again for giving me a chance to consider.
Katie Shea Boutillier"

She’s definitely been swamped with queries in the last few months!

@pamplemousse that wasn't the case for me, but I don't want to disclose more details on a somewhat public platform other than what I've already said.

@goldilocks10 @ssms17 my very uneducated guess is that she’s only responding to books with urgent timelines right now. But that’s just a guess

@ssms17 I found this behavior really surprising. There are a couple other people down in this thread that also had a CNR on a full if you scroll down. I've been querying on and off for a few years and this has never happened to me with any other full request, so it really disappointed me that it was from Katie, as she's always been my top dream agent. She seems super professional on Twitter and in correspondence. I thought she'd be a fantastic fit for me and my book, but I was very wrong. I wouldn't query her again with any other book in the future, either. Not that she cares lol

Did anyone who submitted a full get confirmation of receipt?
