5/19/2017: EQ 62,000 Crime/Lit Fiction: A Few Lost Profits

Update: 6/16/2017: Encouraging rejection from her assistant stating that she and Ms. Wray both read my submission, and although they very much enjoyed it, they had to pass due to "only being able to take on a select number of debut writers every year" (Or this may be just be their way of letting me down gently). Either way, I took it positively.

EG: 3/15 (3 chapters + synopsis)
ER: 7/21

Part personal rejection, part form rejection - helpful overall. Camilla's assistant said she passed because she was concerned how my MS would fit into her current list, as well as the fact that the competition for psychological thrillers is very tough right now as it is such a crowded market. She also noted the agency receives 600 submissions per week (WOW) and they have to be very selective.

EQ: 3/2/16 to Naomi Perry
There is someone reading for her during her maternity leave so this shouldn't be marked closed.
Per the website "Camilla is currently on maternity leave until the beginning of July 2016. Please send accessible and commercial crime, thrillers, suspense and women’s fiction to Naomi Perry."

I think with her, a longer wait is a good thing. It probably means you got past the automatic rejection from the assistant phase, and could be being passed along to be read by the agent.

I submitted an EQ 33 days ago and haven't heard anything. Should I consider this a pass?
