Agent is listed under "Fantasy" on QueryTracker genres, but she does not appear to be seeking fantasy. Both Adult and YA Fantasy have been removed from her QueryManager submission form (and are not listed among her desires in her agency bio or manuscript wishlist). "Magical Realism," however, is still listed.

Submissions page on their agency website says response within 4-6 weeks. It's been more than 6 weeks for me. I hate when queries are skipped using the online form (which implies all queries will receive a response). I'd like to think agents are considering my project when this happens, but it's also an indication that it didn't "wow" them if it sits in limbo. Thoughts anyone? Should I assume a query-skip may as well be a pass?

I never implied I don’t have confidence in her, there’s a reason I queried! Just excited to hear back and hope to have closure if it’s a no.

fictiongirl, Nope. My full was requested in January. I nudged a couple days ago with notification of an offer, and so far, no response.
Edit: polite step aside 4/16

@vickipet darn, that is disappointing to hear for both of us - that she didn't reply to a nudge either. Hopefully she's just backlogged. Congrats on the offer!

Reject at 31 days on literary thriller. Sample pages didn't pull her in. :(

Try this, sealskin 2001: check "Query List" under "Add this agent to my..." in the sidebar. Then click on "click the above icons to update your query status" under that. Hope this helps!

QueryTracker is not letting me document today's query - or I don't know how(?) In any case, my 97000 historical novel query was sent to Elizabeth Copps today, using the online form.
