Was browsing this thread trying to decide whether or not to query Ms. Rutter and just have to say I think Jack Luminous would make such a magnetic name for a character in spec fic.

Amanda is supposed to open today (edit: y'all, I just realized, at 5:30 pm, that today is *not* April 1st. Facepalm. Sorry)

Amanda has had my full for quite a while. She messaged me today thru QM to apologize for not having read it yet and to let me know she is slowly getting caught up. No worries; gave me a chance to send her a shinier revised version. :)

I know some of you think it's rude when agents take forever to respond, but, as someone who has had multiple books traditionally published, if you want to go this route (get an agent, get trad pubbed), waiting for forever is something you should probably get used to. Just saying.

Queried as 193K Adult Fantasy; sent an update through Query Manager on 2/26/2021 that I'd cut to 180K and re-worked initial pitch.

"I'm sorry, but your project does not sound like a fit for me at this time, and so I will have to pass. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries."

For me at least, it IS better to get a response and it's nice that she is responding to stuff from last summer.

I first queried her last June, sent a revision in October, and got a rejection letter in March. I know some agents take a lot of time to respond, but this is ridiculous.

Queried 12/23/20, got a full request 02/02/21, and got a very nice reply on 03/08 stepping aside after I notified her of another agent's offer, saying she didn't have the time to finish reading the whole manuscript in the time given (two weeks after offer).
