Never heard back from Bresnick.

On 10/27/2015 I emailed them again saying don't bother, as I'd signed with another agent :-)

I wish my book had already been published, but I also received a form rejection today from a query sent in March of 2012. I have an agent who's currently subbing my manuscript.
(Ridiculous--agencies, don't even bother wasting your time with rejections more than a year old.)

Received a form rejection over a year after query letter sent, and my book has already been published. Why do they bother? I sent the query in March of 2012.
