Has anyone received a receipt confirmation email from Ms. Nelson or others at her agency? I see she is generally very good about responding within a couple of weeks. It's been twice as long for my query without a word. I know this may mean a rejection, but I'm just curious if she somehow may've missed it all together. She seems fairly prompt even if the answer is no.

To lmr1999 -- The other possibility is that she has put your project in her 'maybe' pile, which many agents do when they're wavering on a project and want to look at it again before deciding.

Very nice form rejection letter. Some agents really nail the wording of their letters. The wait wasn't long either. YA contemporary fantasy 90K

Dear {littleauthor},

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

Pitched YA Contemp at RMFW conference and she requested pages, sent 9/20. Fingers crossed! She's just my kind of agent--hands-on, wants to represent author's career, and very kind on top of that.
