Beth got back to rather quickly after I sent her a follow-up email. Rejection. Ah well. At least now I know for sure.

thanks, katieob. Her website says she responds to everyone, so I just sent her an email to follow-up. Hopefully it doesn't annoy her too much. I just prefer a hard "no" instead of wondering if it got lost...

agreeable- I queried her on 2/9/18 and haven't heard back either. I wonder if no reply = no since she says in her auto reply: If, however, you do not hear a response from me within that time, please feel free to follow-up or send your submission to another GZLA agent, per our submission guidelines.

Sent EQ 2/8, didn't hear back. Her website says to resend if she hasn't responded in 4 weeks. Re-sent 3/19, but didn't get an auto confirmation of receipt like I did originally. Not sure how to follow up without being a bother.

Possibly form? But kind:

"Thanks so much for your query. I’m grateful for the opportunity to consider your project and happy you chose to submit to me. However, I’m not 100% clicking with this particular work. This is all subjective, so while I’m sorry to pass, I do hope you find the perfect agent to represent you."

Beth is now open to queries.

"ICYMI, I’m open to queries! And last night, I requested my first full manuscript from slush at GZLA. These queries have been INCREDIBLE so far. Please keep them coming! For my #MSWL, check out this:
