@al_sho Sorry to hear that. Sometimes, it's for the best. Keep at it, though. The next one could be the manuscript that puts your name in lights. ;)

"This is a quick heads up that I am closing to queries from midnight on 31st December to 1st April next year, so the first quarter of the year. I need to dedicate time to my full requests, to clearing down queries received and concentrating on existing clients!"

I had written this off, and was quite surprised to receive a thoughtful rejection. She was complimentary and noted she was passing reluctantly and invited me to send her new work in the future, which I very much appreciate.

I sent her an updated query on 10/7/20. She replied that she is behind and will consider the updated one. I don't know if I'm being put in the cue for 10/7 or left in my earlier spot, so I want to keep the earlier date here. I don't like the QT automatically changed this to CNR. Patrick, how can I change it back to the query being open?

FYI, for anyone waiting for a reply, I subbed to Amanda on 6/19 and she asked for a full on 6/21, which I sent right away. Based on some comments here and elsewhere, I contacted her a few days ago because I had made some minor but important revisions to the ms based on feedback, and I wondered, if she hadn't yet started my full, if she would rather have the revised version. She responded on 10/3 that she was very sorry but she had not, in fact, read my full yet and I should send her the revised version.

So she is very behind and if you submitted around the same time as me or after, she probably has just not gotten to your query yet.

Sent her a email asking about timelines and I received this response.
I am woefully behind on query reading, I'm not going to lie. I'm dealing with June queries at the moment, initial queries not full manuscripts, so my response times are slow. I'm hoping to pick them up a bit in a couple of weeks when I have cleared editing deadlines.

So, I've never really commented before, but I withdrew a query due to editorial feedback (I'm reworking the first chapter), and she replied and wished my luck on my edits! I just thought it was such a nice thing for her to do, because she didn't have to respond, but it was really encouraging to get that response. She seems lovely.
I had originally queried her 8/12/2020 and withdrew it last week around 9/7 or so, for those who are keeping track of dates.
