I understand getting a form letter, but they could at least type my name instead of just, "Author".

so, @zurizip @tiff880515 and @scritrice, I sent to query.judden using query/synopsis/20 pages (her blog guidelines, not what's on the agency website) and got a full request at about five weeks (I never nudged on the query). That was ~5 months ago and looking at QT it's common for her to be a non-responder on requested material so I haven't nudged yet on that either. I guess I might at some point but I get the impression she doesn't do query email very quickly so I haven't prioritized it. Hope that's helpful!

Hm @tiff880515, that's the same address that I sent to and I haven't heard anything either. I'm not to the 4 week nudge yet, but if anyone who has gotten a response could confirm that's the address used, that'd be good. Otherwise, there might be a general agency email that you could nudge through?

EQ 5/30/18 #DVpit request, mentioned in query that she's had another full of mine for roughly a year (attached previous correspondence to this query)
Nudge 7/3/18, per agency guidelines allowing for follow-up after 4 weeks on queries
7/14/18 Still no reply, though I see she has replied to most of the queries spent on similar dates. I emailed my query to, which is the same email I queried with the last MS, but have received no reply since, either on nudges for the MS or for this new query.

I've nudged twice, once asking if I could resubmit revised MS; haven't heard a word. Closing this one out at seven months. Maybe I'll hear back someday! She seems like an ace. Good luck to all querying!

I checked my spreadsheet - Back in March it was query, synopsis, five pages.

Their agency sub page says to submit the first ten pages, but when you click on more info about Jennifer and go to her own website, it says to submit first 20 pages. And she also says it's important to check her guidelines before submitting. Which instructions have you guys followed?
