I had resent a query a few days ago in case my first query got lost in the spam box, so TBD on all of it

[UPDATE] ER: 5/21/2019 after a nudge this morning. No hard feelings, she wasn't connecting with the voice.

dancingdove311, I queried Amelia on 4/13 and haven't heard back, either. I too, was under the impression I'd hear back by now because it's been 3 weeks and the agency makes it a point to respond to querying authors.

FYI - After 6 weeks, I resent my query and received a response after another 4 weeks passed, for a total of 66 days.

EQ 4/11
No response yet, after three weeks. Since this agency has a two week response time policy, has anyone who queried on or after 4/11 heard anything? Trying to decide if I got skipped somehow.

@ VioletAshby I haven't nudged yet, but she's had my query for close to 6 weeks. From what I can tell it looks like my query was skipped over. I'm not sure if that means I got caught in the spam filter, though.

First query: 3/4
Nudge: 3/25
Second query: 4/11
She hasn't answered my query, or my nudge. It's been 5 weeks since my query, 2 since my nudge. I'd call it a CNR but this agency seems to respond to everyone. Anyone else have that issue? I know it's happened to one other friend.

Same day response:
Thank you for querying me with_______________. 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.

EQ: 02/18/2019 Literary Crime
ER (encouraging form): 03/14/2019

She said a few things that made me think she was considering, but looking at other form letters, it was still a form. I first sent it to Uwe, and he told me to contact her.

Thank you for querying me with _________ - I can see why Uwe sent you my way. I think you have a very interesting story here, and an engaging premise, but I'm afraid I'm just not connecting with this 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.

“Thank you so much for querying me with THE GREEN LADY. I really enjoyed these pages and think the voice is excellent. That said, I'm not confident I'm the best fit for this story. Do you have anything else you're working on? I'd love to hear about any other projects you might be able to share with me.

Thanks again!”
