EQ 8/5/19 The Kinsale Woman Q/50 pgs 72k Romance
8-6-19 Got this response. It must be her standard notification of receipt, but it's a little confusing as she reiterate that the query needs synopsis and 50 pages, which I had already included in the body of my email. I'll wait and see. It was an immediate response and not a rejection, so that's always good,eh?

"For all inquiries regarding representation: if you have not done so already, please email your query letter with the first 50 pages of your manuscript or proposal attached as a Microsoft Word document (docx.) so that we may best evaluate your submission. Please note that we receive many queries, and we endeavor to respond to each as promptly as possible.

All other inquiries will be responded to separately."

Extremely nice form rejection that offers hope and a little differently worded from the others here:

Thank you very much for sending me your work. I’m afraid, however, that I am going to have to pass up the opportunity to represent it. I am currently taking on new clients quite selectively, focusing exclusively on work I feel a deep connection to and have a strong vision for how to sell. I honestly don’t feel that I could represent your work with the requisite enthusiasm in this tough market, but trust another agent will feel differently. I wish you the very best in finding a good home for it.

Sent query + first 50 08/09/18 after agency liked my pitch in Sept 2018 PitMad
Nudged with offer of rep from another agent 09/20/18
Accepted offer of rep from Jill 09/27/18 :)

(I thought I'd come back to add this as I always found these helpful when I was querying!)

Just want to comment that my full request on 03/11 was from pitmad for any pitches she liked. Hence why some probably say "0 days." She hasn't replied other than that automatic response to an email.

CNR 3/18/2019
Data explorer indicates she makes requests from her queries (when interested) very quickly, and she's made several requests after my query was sent. (Will update this if I eventually receive a rejection.) Good luck everyone!

Has anyone from October DVpit heard anything on material? I nudged and sent in a revision, but never heard anything, and according to premium, she has read material later than dvpit. Just wondering if I should CNR her?
