Website says if no answer between 4-6 week it means a "no". It's been almost 8 weeks so... nope.

I'm calling it. It seems like I'm outside the range of requests for more, and my tender writer heart can't take the limbo. <3

@yesrielee - I received an autoreply immediately after I submitted a few weeks ago. I believe it was caught in my spam folder, though, so maybe check there.

Anyone know if I should have gotten an autoreply to confirm receipt of manuscript?

Yes, you can query another if one rejects (but give it about 12 - 16 weeks to be sure)

Some agencies will say “a no from one is a no from all”, because they all share the same slush reader....

The PSLA submissions guidelines states "Please do not query multiple agents at the agency simultaneously – if you don’t receive a response to your query within 4-6 weeks it means a no from the agency." I'm thrown off by the word *simultaneously*. Does this mean I can query another agent after one rejects?
