EQ: 9/7/17
Checked in: 11/6/17 (per her Publishers Marketplace guidelines, it said it was okay to follow-up at around 8 weeks)
ER: 11/12/17

She thanked me for following-up and apologized for the wait. She didn't connect to the sample quite enough to pursue but said I could try someone else at Writers House if I'd like. Not sure if this is a form or a version of a form but it still felt kind and sincere.

Nice form, but still a form.

Thank you so much for reaching out. This isn't quite a match for me, but I hope you find the perfect advocate for your work. Wishing you all the best as you move forward with your search for representation, and I hope to see this on shelves one day.

All best,

Andrea

Yes! And some agents delete queries with attachments without reading. That said, when an agent requests pages after you've queried, it's generally expected to be an attachment.

@cschulte91995 I believe the general rule is to always err on the side of pasting within the body rather than attaching a document. If an agent wants the material attached they will usually specify. But in general agents (like most of us!) are wary of opening attachments from unknown senders. Good luck :)

I have a quick question kind of about this agent but also kind of about querying agents in general: if they say they want a sample of however many pages or chapters and they don't specify either include as an attachment or no emails with attachments accepted is it ok to send the sample as an attachment? Hopefully that question makes sense.....

I got an eject from her on a sub I sent to Rebecca Sherman, so guess she's Ms. Sherman's assistant as well as taking on her own clients - in other words, it's probably not worth querying both of them.

I queried Ms. Morrison on 3/21/17 and received a nicely-worded rejection on 3/26/17. While I obviously wish she had requested more work, I am thankful for the short turn-around time.

Most positive, personal rejection I've ever received. Almost makes me feel good, actually!
"Thanks so much for reaching out, and my apologies for the lack of response over the summer! I'm not connecting to this quite as much as I'd need to in order to pursue, but I hope you find the perfect advocate for your work. Do feel free to try another Writers House agent if you'd like. Wishing you all the best as you move forward with your search for representation. I hope to see your novel on shelves one day."
In reading others' comments, I guess it was a form-letter--but sure was polite! Had me fooled.
