I'm past the time limit during which she said she'd answer to queries, but she's answered a bunch of queries above mine and a bunch below. Is it worth a nudge or not? It seems strange she wouldn't just reject me if it was a pass, so am I being naively optimistic that I'm in a maybe pile?

Thank you, Patrick. Is there a way to change that? It's kind of stressful to have to keep checking query manager not knowing if there's a decision.

That's true, Brenna_Rose. If the agent doesn't add a note there won't be an email.

@mitrads This prompted me to check my page too and the same thing apparently happened to me, passed on the 4th of December, but I guess because she didn’t give a note there wasn’t an email about the pass?

I didn't get an email notification but checked QM today and saw my query was rejected on 12/3. There wasn't a rejection letter, just a notification it was rejected. Not sure if there is a glitch in the QM email notifications maybe?

Her name appears on the dropdown menu for querying on the Trellis online form, and there's no indication in her agent bio that she's closed to queries, so I think she is currently open!

I'm assuming that since Dana switched agencies that any directed to TBG queries are not be considered further.
