She evaluates based on genre. She will let a query sit for a year, and then she'll gather them up and reject them all in one or two batches.

Submitted a query, and then the agent closed to queries. When I look at the timeline, I am not too far from the top. Anyone have any ideas about what to do?

ShaynaGrissom, start a new query to Cole and mark the delivery method as a referral.

QR to Julie was referred to Cole Lanahan who then requested. How do I go about switching the request from the agents?

Rej: 11-Nov-2022

Crappy way to start out my day with a rejection, but at least I have closure after a looong process. Had high hopes with this project—Julie would’ve been the perfect agent for me and I’m hugely disappointed to say the least.

“…I am pulling back for now on adding new clients to get caught up with current clients…”

Same "word count too long" form rejection as others got. 126k Fantasy. Ah, well, I've got requests on this book back when it was 132k.

"Unfortunately, the word count is too long. Typically, novels fall in the 70-100k word count range with historical and fantasy at the top of that range. If you decide to revise you are welcome to resubmit to me at a later date."
