Mrockwell - On Query Manager, even though it says to use the message area to let them know if you are withdrawing a query or have an offer, if you click on it, there is an "other" category. i have used this to follow-up, or nudge. Sometimes I have received a reply as a result, sometimes not.

Thanks, chachadigregorio.

With as often as instances where nudging would be appropriate come up, you'd think the QueryManager form might be revised to include nudging in the list of allowable reasons for sending a message.

@Mrockwell, that is the case with a lot of agencies. I typically wait two months, and if I hear nothing, I query another agent.

All of the agents at Speilburg have a note that says not to query another agent until you've heard back from the first. But it looks like the vast majority of people are CNRing. How are you handling this if you want to submit to another agent there? Anyone?

jessikalindst - Since she is using Query manager, rather than email, I assumed that one should upload the 3 chapters, even for fiction. That is what I did and the submission went through. It took 157 days to get my rejection in a form letter via Query Manager.

I have a question in regards to the submission page. So, in the guidelines it says for fiction to paste the text in the body of the email but then there's the option to upload a file which is for non-fiction but the option is required and as everyone knows, if a required field is left out, then it won't take the submission. Should I just upload the first couple chapters of my book even though it's fiction?
