Queried another agent at Brower in July 2018, who declined interest, but cc'd Aimee who wanted to read the full MS. Full sent 8/1.

Funny how things work!

Never received a response to my first query. Site says to nudge after 6-8 weeks. I resent query with nudge at ~10 weeks. Still never heard back.

Looks like many of the comments indicate Aimee has had a problem with receiving queries or being responsive, sometimes blaming her spam folder (really, it's the 21st century and you're a literary agent). I'm thinking in light of how she conducts her business that I'm better off she rejected my query (at least I think she rejected it).

(Was waiting for the inevitable rejection before recording my full requests, but didn't realise just how slowly things move and the information might be useful for someone in the meantime. Also, it gives me something to do while waiting >_<)

Update: nudged on 04/18 and received ER with some personal comments several hours later.

Very polite personalized note discussing my proposal and explaining why it wasn't for her.
