Erin's communications with me have been so thoughtful and kind. She seems great.

Would anyone happen to know what would be an acceptable time to wait until querying another agent at Folio? I've yet to hear back about my query from Ms. Harris, already a couple months in on response time, so I figure my MS isn't right for her and want to query a different agent. But I couldn't find any specific timeframes on their website, only that they ask not to query multiple agents at once.

Email query 3/28/18
Nudged 4/30 with offer of representation
Rejection 4/30 - A very warm, personal rejection saying that she's sure the book will sell well but that it's not right for her list at this time.

06/26/15 #thewritersvoice full request
3/25/16 nudge, no reply
08/30/16 #pitchamerica full request
09/04/16 sent
confirmed receipt, neither of us mentioned the previous request

I've nudged 3 times with revisions (twice in 2017 and once in 2018), and every times she says she's still interested in taking another look but never seems to let me know after she's read...

EQ 3/27 (I mentioned I had other projects as well.)
FR 3/27 (And she asked about my other projects, too.)
I did like that she followed up today and confirmed receipt. I hate when I send them out and have no idea if the agent ever received it.
Today she passed... 4/21. I'm kinda sad. No specifics but said she was sure it would sell because it was great, but just wasn't quite right for her... uh ok.

Note: I notified Erin Harris that I have an offer of rep from another agent. She requested that she still have a chance to read before I accept the other offer, and I'm more than happy to grant that request. I am so very impressed with her client list, and I'd love to count myself among the lucky writers on it.

Update (01/29/18): I received a very complimentary "step aside" from Erin. I'm dissappointed that she didn't offer, but I ended up with three competing offers of rep, and I'm thrilled with the options I have. For anyone considering Erin: she was great, and I bet she is a fantastic rep for her clients' work.

@m_pepper I had actually only queried her the day before another agent emailed asking to schedule a call. Maybe she only checks her query inbox every few days or something!

@ya_writer - Nope. Nada. I figure if she was interested to begin with, I would already have heard something, so...

@m_pepper have you heard back yet? I nudged Erin yesterday (10/25) notifying her of another offer of rep, but no response yet.

Also, congrats! :-)
