Queried 7th of February, 2021 with a query letter only. MG science fantasy, 45k.
Replied on the 8th of Feb, telling me she isn't the right match for me but wishes me luck.

First query response ever! I'm actually really glad she replied so fast, even if it was a rejection haha

@akuamg Thank you. that's what I thought. But wanted some second opinion in case anyone got the same response.

@new kid: I think she'll get to it later. This is a publishing industry mass action in support of the protestors.

I just sent my query to her and received this automatic reply: "I am remaining offline today in support of calls for the publishing industry to reflect on systemic racism and inequality and to effect change."

Anyone has any idea if this means I should resend again tomorrow or she is just saying she'll get to it later?
I'm beyond confused...
