My query was 41 days out before I got a response. With the holidays and everything, it isn't a bad time frame. However, while waiting, I had received a publishing contract without an agent. And even though I don't need an agent at the moment, it still stings to get a rejection.

PR 01/01/2019--her email states she made a previous request but it did not reach me. Very kind of her to request again! Send the first three chapters, bio, and synopsis

She requested a partial on my YA fiction book though I don't see ya listed in her genres on either site (I'm not actually sure how she ended up in my to-queries but okay)

I wouldn't bother with this one. She likes to request material, make you wait forever, and then ignore you if you dare to follow up. This business needs to be regulated. Despite their claims to the contrary, most literary agents are lazy, arrogant people who would never last at a real job where accountability is required.

She's had my partial for about six months and ignored my follow-up.
Unfortunately, this is the norm in the highly unprofessional publishing business.
Authors, don't fall for the line that agents and editors are just so "busy."
People are busy in all professions. It is generally not an acceptable excuse for treating potential clients poorly.
