7/3/19.

Followed directions on website to include "cover letters with synopsis and contact information"

Received the following email confirming my submission which seems to indicate that I should not have included a query/cover letter. Facebook link has different submission guidelines, but also indicates that Lori Kilkelly is still working there. I'm going to chalk this up to the automatic submission email being out of date.

Thank you for your submission to Rodeen Literary Management, Inc.
Please understand that our resources are limited and we will therefore
contact you directly only if we feel we can place your submission with
a publisher. Please feel free to email us to update your status - for
example if another agent offers representation.

We do not require or respond to "queries," so if you have sent a query
rather than a synopsis and submission, please review our submission
guidelines: https://www.facebook.com/RodeenLiterary/info and
feel free to send along your actual submission. Please note, if you
put Query in the subject line, but DID include your submission, it is
NOT necessary to resend; we will review it.

EQ: Mar. 30 to Lori Kilkelly auto-r. confirming receipt
CNR: May 29

Has anyone queried Lori Kilkelly and received a response (other than the auto-r.) from her? If so, how long did it take? As she doesn't have her own QT page, it's hard to know when to give up. Thanks!

I submitted in November 2015 and got a confirmation email. It has been now 11 weeks since submission should I assume it was rejected?
