CNR: 3/31/2017, Since her longest positive response time is 38 days.

ER: 4/19/2017. I was surprised to receive a personalized rejection from her. She encouraged me to "continue developing" my work and "reach out to agents." Since I submitted to her back in January, I had cut 13K words. Perhaps the 100K+ put her off.

EQ 7/20/16 (Requery Venom)
ER 9/6/16 (Passed--not right fit for list. I was about to close her out today.) I'll try her with my new ms next month or try Rachel Crawford instead.

Paige, at least you got an answer. I got nothing. On 4/8/16, I requeried Allison with Chain Reaction. I nudged her two weeks ago and got nothing. It's CNR. I'll try her this summer with Venom.

5/31/16--I've heard back from Allison today with a pass on CR (not a right fit, try other agencies). I'll try her in mid-June with Venom's new query.

Form rejection letter. Rejection notwithstanding, this agency seems to have their act together.

80K Literary Fiction - First time querying Ms. Devereux, third time querying Wolf Literary (Three different MS). Same form rejection each time:

Thank you for your submission to Wolf Literary. We’re afraid your project isn’t quite right for our lists at this time, but we encourage you to continue editing and querying other agencies.

Thanks again, and best of luck in your search for representation.
