Thanks mzbritney12! It must not have gone through for some reason. I'll try again tonight.

Hey Elysia,
When I upload a full or any docs via QueryManager, it always sends me a confirmation to my email.
Sometimes I have to refresh my inbox before getting the confirmation email, though.

For those who have gotten a request from her, did QueryManager give you any sort of confirmation that your file successfully uploaded? This is my first time submitting a full through QueryManager -- I've always gotten requests to send by email attachment before -- so I'm not sure exactly how it works. But after I hit submit, I expected some sort of confirmation to come up, and I didn't get anything.

"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to consider your project. I've gone over your query and sample pages and though I love certain elements, others aren't quite working for me. This is a subjective reaction based on my preferences and current wishlist, and as this is a subjective industry, I encourage you to keep querying looking for your agent match! I'm sorry I cannot be more specific at this time, but I encourage you to stay positive and keep at it - following major writing blogs and Twitter hashtags, or local critique groups and writing events can provide some excellent networking and direction.
I'm so thankful you queried me. I wish you the best with this project and hope you'll keep me in mind in the future - I welcome you to query me with other projects when they are ready!"

Very lovely and friendly. :)

It's nice to hear that BookEnds forwards queries around. Agencies always say this, and I never quite believe them, so it's nice to know it's true, at least in one case.

I sent my query to Naomi Davis, but she passed it along to Natascha Morris, who declined with a form letter but added this bit: "I've gone over your query and sample pages and though I love certain elements, others aren't quite working for me. I am drawn to your Lithuanian mythology, but ultimately, the sample pages felt overwritten to me and didn't provide the strongest entrance to hook me in to the narrative."
Sigh. I was wondering if the opening pages were a problem, as they're a prologue, so I've rearranged things so that the story opens with the MC sneaking out of her convent. Hoping for better results.
