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.

Anyone know how long she generally takes on fulls? I submitted one mid-July that she confirmed receipt of. I'm wondering whether a non-response after a certain amount of time is a no - can't find anything about it on the agency's website.

So, should those of us who queried her via e-mail re-submit through her form?

Profile Update: Their Submittable form link is now on their website. It is https://rhaliterary.submittable.com/submit

Too bad they don't know about QueryManager, which is free and a lot better.

Yeah, I even spent some time searching Submittable and couldn't find them.

Profile Update: Now taking online form queries only via Submittable. But their website does not actually provide a link yet.
