Received an autoreply to a query today (sorted into promotions by gmail) that states the following:

"Nikki Terpilowski is currently closed to submissions from October 1, 2022 to March 1, 2022. Any submissions sent prior to Oct 1st will be reviewed. Any submissions sent after Oct 1st will be reviewed after March 1st"

The March 2022 I'm assuming is a typo?

The website says both Holloway agents are open. I'm unclear on the open/closed status.

Submitted Query on 9/13/22
Received Rejection on 9/26/22

I appreciated the quick response.

Was told the Holloway word count requirement for a thriller is 80,000-90,000 words. Mine was 67,000. They added that if I do decide to increase the story word count that I could feel free to query again at that time.

90 after querying, I never got a rejection, BUT I was added to their email list marketing their online classes. Not a fan of that!

12 day form rejection on cont romance from submission coordinator Lauren Albury.

Thank you for your submission,

"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.

Best,"

ghosting on a full is just plain trash. Why do agents do this?

I hope everything goes well for you, tghuguenin. I was emailed an offer of representation but didn't formally request the electronic signature form of the Author-Agency Agreement in time. So I'm rewriting a bit and resubmitting to other agents. Lesson learned the hard way.
