Per the agency's site "If we haven't responded after two weeks, we have not received your query." So, I resent my query on 07/21/19 after it had been almost 4 weeks. Of course, my luck, this was right before she posted an update on Twitter advising everyone she's behind. I just thought my email didn't through because I have spotty internet. Ugh. Well I'm going to make sure I notify her when I receive a response.

Received ER 8/1/19 to the original query sent 6/24/19 ---- I'm going to take that as a rejection on the project as a whole and close this out.

From her Twitter since others are CNRing: "There seems to be confusion about what an agent “closing to queries” actually means. It does *not* mean that we aren’t responding to the things that are *already* in our inbox! It just means that we are not accepting any new, unsolicited work! #querytip"

ER: 08/12/19

I'm a little disappointed, not just to receive a form response, but that I received the wrong form rejection: it said my story wouldn't stand out in the "crowded YA market" when my MS is Adult. Oh well.

Update 08/01/2019: No response so far, so I've sent a nudge (per the agency's guidelines).

Update #2: Got an auto-response saying that she isn't checking her email while she's closed, so basically my query's lost for the time being. I'll likely be withdrawing, at least until I can re-query when she opens again.

At least I didn't have to wait weeks for a rejection. I was surprised she responded the next morning.
