Very sweet refusal. Due to a very full client list, she needs to be especially selective about pursuing new projects.

I'm only seeing "I am not accepting physical submissions at this time." - which means don't mail a physical copy.

Her bio on Publisher's Marketplace under submissions (at the end of the page) says she's closed to queries. In the Writer's House Website, click on Agents + Submissions. Select Rebecca Sherman and Publisher's Market Place.

Standard: "I’ve reviewed your query with Rebecca and I’m sorry to say that we weren’t connecting wholeheartedly with your writing, despite its many charms, so we should step aside. We truly appreciate the look, though, and we wish you nothing but the best of luck with your future endeavors."

@swatithegeek, thank you for the suggestions! I haven't nudged, but I will try that today.

eflora, you can email her and nudge, if you haven't already, or simply email to withdraw your query, wait up to a week for her to reply (they generally reply within hours when you withdraw, based on my past experience!!!) and then query someone else at Writers House regardless. You notified her -- you did your part. *shrug*
