m_elizabeth, they don't say either way on their website. But I would suggest giving them about 2 months to reply through Submittable. And if you don't hear from them after that, then go ahead and re-query.

Are people submitting a synopsis with their query to Claire? The agency's submission guidelines don't require one, but I saw on Literary Rambles from last year that she actually likes 3 chapters plus a detailed synopsis:

"8. How should authors query you and what do you want to see with the query letter?

So, what I’m going to say conflicts a bit with what’s on our website – sorry! Our house policy is the first ten pages in-line in the email, but I quite like to see a bit more. My ideal is the first three chapters plus an in-depth synopsis – something closer to 1000 than 500 words."

I've had some back and forth with Claire over the years, so she got to my manuscript fairly quickly. Ultimately she passed, as she didn't connect with the storyline as she hoped she might. Too bad, I was really hoping she'd say yes this time.
