Today (June 7, 2022) I clicked on the link seen on Denise Barone's agent profile page in QT for website: Doing so took me to an odd-looking page that was pretty clearly not the one I wanted. A google search, by contrast, suggested as its top hit a link to a different URL: it appears on the google search results page as " > BaroneLiteraryAgency" and is the right place. FYI.

wondering if she's incredibly backlogged. I submitted early/mid September of last year and haven't heard anything.

I CNR'd in may of last year but I submitted in September of 2018 and it is now december 2020 and I didn't even get the one word rejection that others have gotten

Same here! With what JTrevorRobinson said, she just sent an e-mail saying "Pass." If you're bothering to reply, you can write one sentence why. The other rejections I've gotten have been very professional stating: thank you for submitting your work, unfortunately it doesn't fit with us, etc. She seems very unprofessional. Don't be discouraged by this! And I don't know if it's because of this, but when you paste your manuscript pages in the online form, it completely screws up the formatting. So I had to literally edit in a Word document very meticulously to get it to paste right for other agents. I wouldn't bother submitting to her. There are plenty of other more professional agents out there who will at least send you a proper response, if they decide to respond. Even though we all want to be published, you don't want it to be with a bad agent. I was with a bad publisher before, because I didn't seek out an agent. Trust me. You want the best agent out there who's professional and going to look out for you and give you the best representation.

Not even a form letter for rejection; just the single word "Pass".

Finally got the form accepted.

10/12/18 -- STILL cannot get my submission to go through. Getting this error message on both Firefox and IE:

There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later.

Is anyone else having this problem? Any suggestions?

ER 4/11/19 (Passed with personalized feedback--likes story and has potential, but she felt it was a bit too telly. She did encourage me to resubmit if I wish. I might do it later this summer.)

Congrats Lucy!
