QM doesn't auto reject or remove queries. Perhaps she had some search filters set which hid the query, or if she uses readers perhaps they did something with it.

If she was able to find your query, tialsb, that must be the explanation (that QM didn't lose it, per se, but that those older queries timed out). I would definitely follow up in that situation, especially if an agent says they respond to every query.

@KristaVanDolzer: I don't know how QM works but maybe it times out if the agent doesn't respond after X number of weeks? Kind of like QT does.

@VictoriaAlexis: this was right before she re-opened. She found mine when I asked about it so it wasn't lost.

@KristaVanDolzer was this recently or queries from before she closed? I didn’t query long ago but I’m wondering if QM has lost some of them now

I find it kind of troubling that QM told her she'd responded to all of her outstanding queries when apparently she hadn't...

Madeline_Dau: I had to ask her on Twitter to look into mine. She said that her QM told her she had responded to everything. So maybe give her a nudge over there?

Madeline_Dau, according to Data Explorer, she responded to roughly half of the queries she received in mid-October at the beginning of February. The rest have since filled in as closed/no response.

Has anyone who submitted just before she closed in October 2020 heard anything back?

I swear I've checked her blog every day since I began querying in January waiting for her to open. One of my absolute tops! Fingers crossed!!
