"You deserve an unequivocally enthusiastic agent as your advocate." Very sweet way of giving a rejection, even if it is a form. Onward and upward!

She surprised me with a rejection this week after 210 days. She said she'd been holding it for a second look. I had long ago marked it CNR.

Elysia, the same-day full request was probably in response to a PitchWars showcase entry - those just went out.

Does her timeline seem a little all over the place? There are people getting requests from 223 days. Then someone got a same day request today? Kind of confusing.

kateanderwrites, she does. I got a request at 223 days. I had CNR'd for my own peace of mind, but if you get another offer and you haven't heard from her, you should still nudge her.

EHAshley, could you send a resubmission if the changes are significant? I'm not sure what the agency's policy is.

Congrats, C_Bruggeman!

I’m at 105 days with no response... should I CNR or does she still respond to every query!

She went through the trouble to let me know that she was grappling with my query all that time, which is the most encouragement I've received from within the industry to-date! I do wish I had known she was on the fence. I had revised my entire manuscript in that time frame and, while I don't know what the deciding factor was, I'm positive she would have enjoyed my edited work more. Good luck to everyone who got requests in this batch! If you haven't yet heard, there's still hope!

survivorextraordinaire, same thing. I queried when she opened in June, and got a full request yesterday, 1/20/20.

Does anyone know if she still aims to respond to all queries, or maybe now she just responds to the ones she can get to? I thought I remembered she responds to every one, but I queried in June and haven’t heard back. I followed up just in case, but maybe it’s just a CNR.

UPDATE: Yes, I think she is still aiming to answer! She got to mine today, 1/20/20 (request!)
