YA Contemporary Fantasy 79,000 - form rejection

Thank you for your query. While your project does sound interesting, I'm afraid it's not quite right for me at this time. I genuinely appreciate your email and wish you luck finding an agent who can successfully champion your work.

All best,

Patricia

Has anyone who submitted a DVpit query received a response yet? I've nudged once but I'm not sure if I should take the lack of response as a pass, especially since it was a DVpit request.

You might be sitting in a maybe pile, Adams84. Neither she nor the agency mention response times. You could wait a few more weeks, to be sure. Then send a poilite nudge. I think that's what I would do. Good luck!

Nearly everyone around me on the timeline has received a response, and now I wonder if my query got lost or sent to the spam folder. Should I re-send?

She is the assistant of Kevan. So, DO NOT QUERY KEVAN if you query her.

Form letter, but it's always nice when they plug in your name like she does. YA SF, 99k.

Queried her way back in March 2018; Patricia proceeded to tweet about my query and how she "doesn't understand why authors set stories in the 1990s." (I have an agent now... but adding this for future reference.)
