Edit, 9 March 2022: Received a polite decline today! That's WELL over a year from intial Dec. 2020 query to now. Just for a reference of timeline!

Genre: adult historical fiction

I queried Ms. Speilburg in December of 2020, and HAD moved her to my "closed no reply" pile in early May. However, I then reached out to her, and we've exchanged a few messages since. She noted that she hadn't read my query yet, but the fact that she replied just goes to show that, even if she hasn't replied yet to you, to not give up hope.

Honestly, if it's been >8 months on a query, my feeling is: don't bother sending a rejection. It's understood.

I've since set this MS aside, so I'd kinda forgotten I technically had some queries pending...

3 months and no response. Reading through the other comments, there doesn't appear to be much consistency in whether she gets back to you within a few weeks or in a year.

@jwmlex52 - out of curiosity, when did you send your query? Thanks!
