@moxleyhood You can re-query her, just let her know that it's a revised version of a query you've sent before and tell her that you made huge changes to the MS

Asking for advice: I queried Bridget almost two years ago and got no response, nudged after six months to ask if my query was still under consideration, and still got no reply. I'm therefore not sure if it's a CNR or something else, since she seems pretty good about sending concrete rejections unless something gets lost in her "maybe" pile--maybe I got lost in the maybes, maybe in the email abyss, or maybe she was just so appalled by my story (for whatever reason--we've all been there! ) that she couldn't bring herself to respond. ;)

In the meantime, I've vastly reworked my manuscript and written a new query to match. I really think Bridget could be a good fit and am considering sending my updated query, but I would love to hear any advice re: decorum that you all might have for this situation! Thanks in advance!

Others who have submitted later than me have already received a response. I assume (hopefully!) that I've made it into her maybe pile. I hope that turns into an acceptance...

Fast response, which is nice. From rejection on a MSWL tweet she made the same week, which just makes me grumpy.

Lilnightmusic, she really does use a maybe pile. Settle in for a very long wait. My query sat in it for 3.5 months before becoming a full request (this is not the first time that's happened with materials I have sent to her). And congrats on making it to the maybe pile!

I know via twitter that she’s buried under manuscripts right now, so I’m not sure whether I should nudge or close this out. From what she’s told me, she does maybe pile a lot of queries and maybe I’m one of them? Gah.
