Form Query June 8th, 2021
#SFFpit like July 28th, 2021, Not sure what to do with this since she said on twitter to query her at a special QM form for #SFFpit. Should I nudge at the old query? Should a re-query at the new link? Based on past comments, I think I'll get auto-rejected for re-querying. Someone tell me what to do >_< SOS!
Nudge July 29th, 2021 using original query link, let's see how it goes

Adult Fantasy 160k

Edit 2: Has anyone tried nudging her? Since she's using QM I'm guessing being skipped is a good thing, but the pessimist in me thinks I've been forgotten

Edit 1: According to her website (http://lisaabellera.com/?page_id=41), she has an open call for: "fiction with diverse characters and/or themes of tolerance, multiculturalism, identity and the immigrant experience, social activism, empowerment, and justice; inclusive stories, especially by BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and other authors who identify with marginalized or underrepresented communities. " The form link is here: https://querymanager.com/query/LisaAbellera/open_call_MSWL
Also it looks like my query was skipped and I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing :|

@raktinope I just got a like on my SFFpit pitch after being rejected through APIpit, haha. I've done a ton of revisions since then, so I decided to requery. I led with "I am responding to a like I received from SFFpit. I originally queried on [DATE]... etc"

APIpit like: 5/4/2021
EQ: 5/5/2021
ER: 6/29/2021
SFFpit like: 7/28/2021

very kind "not for me" rejection that encouraged me to keep querying!

This agency does not take kindly to revised submissions. I sent a revised query about 2.5 years after my first, and got back a rejection similar to @ponsoire.

The message didn't really give clear direction on HOW to revise, so I probably won't resub.

@ponsoire Did you mention the conversation you had with her in the re-query? That's really disappointing to hear.

I paid for an event to ask Lisa if I could re-query a revised MS, because there is no route to contact her (or the agency) privately, and she did not respond to tweets about an inquiry. She said she would consider the revised MS. Despite this, I received a reply stating she was deleting my query because I’d “already queried it.” This is unreliable and disrespectful of the time I spent trying to communicate with her.

She apologized for taking so long to get back to me, but it had only been 10 days.
