I submitted on 9/7 in response to a PitMad like. No response, so I nudged 11/20. Haven't heard from that but we'll see. It's just strange to get a CNR from someone who a) solicited my query in a pitch contest and b) I have met in person and got along with and had multiple emails with about my last project. Which leads me to conclude I must be getting sent to the spam filter? I may try again from another email address. I just hate to be overly-naggy if he is getting the emails!

Submitted again from a different email address on 12/9. If no response from this one, I'll let it go.

Because we met in person and he asked for a query on SFFPIT, I'm sending it again from another email address:

Nudge: Early October (via both twitter, where he is very active, and email)
CNR: 11/28

Shame. On a past query, I had to nudge him on twitter after a month, but he then replied immediately (and requested a partial). This time, he was responsive pre-query, and then went dark almost as soon as I sent it. Guess it wasn't a fit.

59 days, data explorer suggests he's way past my query, so I'm closing this one out.

sent a requested synopsis about a month ago with no response or confirmation of receipt. does anyone know what the timeline is for nudging him? or should i assume it's a pass?

deutschlandchick - I wish I knew what it meant, too! I also wish that "no response means no" agents/agencies would at least provide an auto-reply confirmation so that authors would know the "no response" really DOES mean "no" and not "never saw it because it went to spam." Lots of them do set up auto-replies, which is fantastic, I just wish they all did - would prevent a lot of headaches :(

MR_Work,,, I have the same issues with other query gets always skipped...I wonder if that means: a, instant delete; b. the 'maybe' pile, or c. spam....I hate that! lol

Did anyone receive an auto-reply confirmation when they submitted their query? I did not, and Data Explorer suggests my query's been "skipped" (and it's coming up on 8 weeks anyway). My query's been skipped by a LOT of really-high-response-rate agents, though, so I'm starting to worry I've been waiting for absolutely nothing because my query was sent to spam.

Has anyone gotten a response from a #PitMad query? Contests don't show up in the query timeline and it looks like he's responded to a bunch from around that time, so I'm wondering if he's also replying to those queries as well.

No response as of 8/1
Was requested during #SFFpit 6/22
No response from that either.
Tried again 8/25 from different email. Did not include anything that might get spammed. Still no reply as of 9/29. Did not respond to question via twitter. I give up.

Queried twice years ago: he's one of the best out there. Learned a lot from each rejection. Unfortunately, something weird must be going on with my queries this time around.
