"Emailed one of two employees listed at the agency as Submission Coordinators to ask if my NF Proposal can be attached (it's long) or if it must be pasted to the body of the query." That was on Sep. 5th. No response even to that. Now on my Do-Not-Query List.

Emailed one of two employees listed at the agency as Submission Coordinators to ask if my NF Proposal can be attached (it's long) or if it must be pasted to the body of the query. BTW (referring to an earlier comment), I think I got a rejection at least six years after the queried book had been published. I've had the same email address forever, so these ancient rejections do come up now and then.

"Your work has been carefully reviewed, and it has been determined that Holloway Literary will not be pursuing representation. We regret sending you this information in a form letter; however, due to the volume of emails we receive daily it is almost impossible to send customized letters to every author. Thank you again for thinking of Holloway Literary, and we wish you every success in your writing career."

I just wanted to say it took 2 years to send a rejection. LOL
I've been agented and made two book deals in-between time.

I received a form rejection from this agent a full year after my query. Seeing it in my inbox cracked me up because in the meantime I'd signed with another agent and the novel sold in a six figure preempt.

I submitted a query back in July and received a note from the submissions coordinator in late October that my query was still under consideration. Sent a follow-up to the submission email recently and got an auto-reply referencing she is closed to submissions, but if query was sent prior to Nov. 1, they would be "reviewed as normal," whatever that means.
