Venom is my manuscript I'm querying--the same for Chain Reaction. I'm querying both of them to agents. Yeah I'm requerying both of my mss for a second chance.

3/7/16--On 1/18/16, I've queried Janet with Chain Reaction. After two weeks with a nudge, I'm closing it as CNR. I'll try Rachelle Gardner this spring with Venom.

Thanks, Kristen, much appreciated. But what is Venom? And Chain Reaction? I've seen Venom mentioned a couple of times in connection with re-querying and wondered what it meant.

Hi Ivy. I originally queried Janet 4 years ago. Since my query and ms has changed since then, you can requery an agent with a 50/50 shot. You can also requery her, if you have a revise and resubmit, or if your email gets lost in spam. I've gotten some luck with my requeries so far. Welcome to querying and QT!

KristenH, what do you mean when you say you will requery an agent with Venom? Thanks for any guidance; I'm new at this!

3/8, I've sent her my query. I passed on my nudge. Should've closed this out in April. Now it's closed. Will try Rachel Kent next month.

Auto response from Books and Such:
the number of queries we receive has grown by 100% each year for the past three years, causing us to spend a large percentage of our days responding to queries. As we considered how to remain responsive to submissions while being good managers of our time, we concluded that we will only contact those writers from whom we want to see more material. If you don't hear from us asking to see more of your writing within 30 days after you have sent your email, please know that we have read and considered your submission but determined that it would not be a good fit for us.
