EQ 5/2/17 (Venom)
FR 7/6/17 (Full request from Ann Rose--she said query and pages were intriguing.)
Revised full sent on 9/17/18 and on 12/13/18.
CNR 5/15/19 (Sadly, I had to close this out since she never responded to my nudges. The last auto-response I got was in November last year. Now there isn't any responses at all. If she re-opens again and if I'm not agented, I'll recontact her. Both Patrick and I have no idea on what her status is over here.)

EQ: 3/8/17
sent with full through own voices initiative
Nudged 7/13/17
Nudged again on 7/22/17 with different subject in case the other got sent to spam.

So its Sept. 14 and I still haven't heard anything. I don't know if I should attempt to follow up again or just mark this CNR. Query tracker system has marked it as CNR. The own voices guidelines said they would reply to all with at least a reason for why they weren't taking it if they rejected it....

Nudged with offer: 10-19.

The guidelines say she responds to all queries sent #ownvoices, but it has been over 4 months.

Form rejection:

Thank you for giving us a chance to consider your project. I've gone through your query and your sample pages, and unfortunately I am going to have to pass as it just doesn't feel like the right project for us at this time.

Please remember that this is a highly subjective industry, and what doesn't work for us is probably exactly what another agent may be looking for. It only takes one yes to get you in the door!

With that in mind, here is a link to the Writer's Digest Guide to Literary Agents Blog ( to help you - it contains articles about new agents in the field, as well as interviews so you have a better chance of finding an agent that is perfect for you.

I wish you all the best in your search!

Warm Regards,

Hi SaraCo. It takes a few months. It took about four months for me as well. Keep hanging in there. I'm sure you'll get a response soon.
