Thank you for querying me. I think you have an interesting story here, but I'm afraid I'm not connecting with it on the whole in a way that makes me think I'd be the best champion for it, so I am going to have to pass.

I pitched to Amelia at a conference this summer. She seemed very excited and our conversation went really well. She requested 50 pages and even asked me to pitch a second book in person with one minute left in our pitch! It was great!
Then I sent her all requested materials. It's been 45 days with no response. So that's... Hm.
I kind of want to nudge her but I also understand that a pass could be simply a pass and I need to move on.

EQ: 21st July
Nudge: 8th August (18 days) due to guidelines which say that if you have not received a response within two weeks they never received your query.
I then received the auto-response that Stargrave copy-pasted below so I know at least that my emails are reaching her.
