Hmmm, not sure what to do. Mine was one of the first queries after she reopened, and I haven't had a response.

I did get the auto-responder, which says they're a "no response means no" agency (and also to allow 12 weeks... I'm currently at 9 weeks) , but that's tough to swallow when she clearly responds to everyone else.

Has anyone nudged on a query with Madelyn?

UPDATED: Just got a very nice form--loved the premise, not a fit for her list, please keep her in mind for future submissions. Don't know if that was a form form or a personalised form, but it felt nice all the same. My title was personalised.

@ BallooneyToon - I've been wondering about this myself. I submitted later in January and received a confirmation email like yours. Right now I am surrounded by rejects in the data explorer list but I haven't heard a thing. I'm hoping there's a maybe pile. Looking at her partial requests from the past few months, they range from 1 day to 83 days (11 weeks). She hasn't requested anything new since opening at the beginning of January, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed she's making a list for requests! (Or I could be delusional.)

ER: 2/23 With offer for R&R and some truly apropos feedback. I kinda felt some passion from Madelyn in her email, and her edits were spot-on. She'll be the first to receive my overhauled MS, and hopefully something comes of it. :D

Nice form, addressed to me specifically and personalized with my protagonist's name. And super-fast response!

A form response, but with some personalized feedback included, which was very helpful.
