5/15/18 - Email query (F 125k)
5/17/18 - Form Rejection.
Points for quick turnaround, but agree with others that referring queries to Writer's Digest etc. is a bit tacky.

5/4/2018 - Email query (Dark Fantasy 80K words)
5/8/2018 - Form rejection that referred me to Writer's Digest and this website, which I was already on.

5/3/2018 - Sent email query, SF 120K words
5/7/2018 - KInd but nonspecific rejection. "Unfortunately, it's not a perfect fit for me." Could be a form letter but hard to tell. Hoped for more as this was one of my higher priority agents.

Very kind rejection. It wasn't her taste.

Even though it was a pass, I HIGHLY recommend querying Lindsay. She was kind enough to provide a few lines of feedback and I actually fixed the flaws she mentioned under my writing mentor's guidance (I got into a mentoring program a couple months after her rejection). I'm sad she's no longer accepting YA SFF but I wish the best of luck to the rest of you! YA Fantasy ownvoices 92k

I thought the rejection letter was awkwardly written, and the attempt to be helpful by referring me to Writer's Digest, et al. felt like she didn't even read the query, since I have a track record of publication and it seemed directed at a novice.

I submitted it before she updated her genres to not include ya anymore, but we’ll see.
Got the rejection today. I saw that she’d just signed another writer whose book was YA and then took Ya off her genres. Bummer. But on to the next one!

If you've been thinking about querying Lindsay Mealing, there's a great opportunity to get feedback from her on your query letter and first page! She's participating in Operation Awesome's Pass or Pages contest this month. Details here:
