EQ: 5/18/17 - partials for 2 manuscripts during Pitchfest on Savvy Authors site
Nudged 8/7/17 - for one of the two: it's been 80 days, so we'll see!
Nudged 2nd time: 11/13/17
ER: 11/13/17 Well that was quick. Just wish I'd heard sooner instead of after almost 6 mos and my need to nudge. At least now I can check this one off. :-)

Interesting that on the agency website, there's nothing about her being closed to queries.

Form rejection, but polite and encouraging and better than being left hanging....

Thank you for thinking of me in your search for representation. I appreciate you sharing your work with me. However, after taking a closer look I don't feel that this project is a good fit for my list, so I'm going to have to pass.

Please keep in mind that this is a very subjective business, and mine is only one opinion.

Best Wishes,

I was put off Inklings because of a very very (very) long tweet rant that the founder of the agency wrote saying how she had a full job elsewhere and people should be understanding. I've been in this biz a long time and have never known a literary agent (at least a legit one) to be a "hobbyist" agent. Margaret, however, was the one I wanted to query, so now that she's elsewhere I will give it a try.
