I sent a follow-up email to see if they received my work. If they don't email me back in 6 weeks, I'll close this.

CNR 11/19/2022: I sent my final email attempt to have them reach out to me. If she emails me back, I'll edit this but I don't see that happening. Good luck all! I hope you get better results from her.

Something inspirational to read: Don't be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.
Good luck everyone!

Her Twitter account redirects to an account with a bunch of random numbers that says the account doesn't exist.

Edit: It doesn't anymore, but her last tweet was in 2019. Weird

Ms. Simmonds appears to be a one-woman agency in the UK. I'd queried her because my fantasy novel was British in style and seemed a good fit. My original query was Sept. 12, 2019. Despite multiple requests for status (1/3/2020, 2/25/2020, 6/30/2020, 8/31/2020, and 1/3/2021), she has never responded. It could be the pandemic has taken its toll on her agency.
