Historical Romance

Yes, you read that right. 2018. It still shows "No Decision Has Been Made" in the status. Funny enough, this is for my first novel. I also queried her for my second and got a rejection. At this point, instead of pulling it, I want to see how long this will go :D

The QT stats suggest Sarah will respond within 30 days if she's interested, so I'm going to go ahead and close this one. Best of luck to everyone still being considered!

Sent the query to Nancy Yost as her bio indicated that she liked cozy mysteries and she might be open to literature with a southern bent.

16 Jul 2019 - FQ - resubmitted the same query since at the time, querymanger did not let you nudge unless you had an offer.
5 Feb 2020 - CNR

The agency does not mention a no response policy, but Sarah behaves as if she has one. I really wish any agency who was not going to reply would at least give a number of days to wait because authors do try to limit the number of submissions they send out.
