@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...

YA Fantasy - Passed with nice form letter - not good fit. I replied because the note was sweet, as opposed to all the other form letters and she replied. She really seems nice. The right person will be lucky to be represented by her.

Query letter only, without sample per instruction on her website. "Thank you for thinking of me in connection with your writing. I’m not the right match for you on this project..." At least I didn't have to wait long!

QueryTracker says she hasn't requested a full since January of 2018 and no partials since 2012. Probably not worth the time, my fellow writers!

Nice wording, but still a form rejection. Better than no reply though.
