DVpit EQ: 04/23/19, she requested the full immediately
FR sent: 04/30/19, received confirmation same day
Nudge: 06/18/19, letting her know she liked it during Pitmad but she has the full already
Reply same day: Thanked me for letting her know, said she found the pitch both great and familiar during Pitmad -- with a winky face! She seems really cool!
ER: 06/21/19
The rejection bummed me out. She liked the premise and the voice, but said the writing isn't strong enough for the crowded YA market. Nothing about how other agents might feel differently or this is just her opinion. Felt like a blanket statement. Well. Thanks.

#Pitmad PR: 03/08
FR (!!): 04/18
I was starting to give up hope for a positive response, so this was a nice surprise!
ER: 05/10 Gave vague reply with nothing I can use to revise. Just said she didn't know how to sell. Oh well.

About a two week turnaround on response, which is always preferable to no response no matter the outcome.

Received a response almost immediately—that Ms. Spieller isn't currently accepting submissions in my genre, but I am welcome to query another Triada agent.

She requested from me after almost two months, without a nudge. So for those wondering if the query was received, I'd say the actual response time is longer than the website says.

Okay... I sent my query on 4-18-19, which is exactly two weeks ago. Based on the note on the Triada website about not having received it if they don't respond within two weeks, does anyone on here think I should re-query? I feel rude doing that, but if there's a chance she didn't see it at all, I guess I'd rather be rude than miss out on an agent? Maybe I'll wait a few days...
