@jennadevillier I’m in the same boat. For some, I wonder if an assistant goes through and does a first round scrub of ones they don’t think will work, then the rest are left for the agent (which takes much longer.) It’s tough on the nerves!

I CNR’d this one in my mind because there were “yes” responses after me from August but, I haven’t received a “no,” hopefully it’s a maybe that shifts to a yes.

I'm really curious to know the reason why (according to the Timeline feature) my query has been skipped over. I have a few more queries out like that, too... hopefully I'm in the elusive Maybe pile ;)

@Shopcraze1, her twitter says she does but to make sure you mention in your query that it's a resubmission and that it's been revised :)

Dear Author,

Thanks so much for your query and interest in our representation for TITLE OF WORK. I was very glad to have a chance to take a look. Regrettably, I don’t feel sufficiently excited about the material to take it on, but please remember that reactions to fiction are entirely subjective, so I do recommend that you try some other agents.

Best of luck to you in finding a home for your work, and thank you for thinking of me and the Donald Maass Literary Agency.

Best,
Caitlin

Would anyone know if Caitlin accepts resubmissions after there have been significant revisions? Thanks
