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

I still haven't heard from her as of July 22, 2021... so it's been 1176 days with no response.

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

Her response to my query took 375 days ... um, huh.

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.

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!

Sent a very nice, detailed rejection letter with constructive feedback for my Adult Historical Fiction.

410 days, but I appreciate nonetheless that she actually sent a rejection as opposed to "silence = no".
