E-Mail receipt of query states if they don't request additional materials within 3 weeks, it is a pass.

from website: We make a conscious effort to reply to every query we receive. If you do not receive a request for additional materials within three weeks, you should assume that we are not interested in that particular project.

Anyone heard back from last year's requests? I nudged this week to her new email and at least got an auto reply.

WhiteGardenia, that request was probably mine and it didn't even come through email (she heard the first chapter at a writing group and asked to see it).

.
According to the QT Timeline, her last request was in Sept 2017.

In fact, researching the past year for this agent, none of the handful of requests were ever closed out. I've only queried her within the last 2 weeks, but I think this is dead in the water.

Just sent another nudge, saying it would be my last attempt at contacting her (but mentioning it might be email issues so hopefully not too passive aggressive LOL) if she doesn't respond to this one within a week or two I'm closing it out. She doesn't seem to be responding to anyone at this point. Seems like either legit email issues or she's not checking her email anymore. I'll post here in a couple weeks to let you know if she ever responded. Most of you will probably be better off trying another agent at this agency as it's hard to tell if she's even reading her queries.

Confirmation email says that if they have not responded in 3 weeks, then it is a pass.

Me neither :( I'm tempted to send her a twitter DM (we've chatted there in the past) but to be honest I'm kind of in the boat of, if she were interested she'd have responded. Getting an automated response means my nudge at least made it to her inbox so if I don't hear anything soon, I'll probably just close this one out.

No, @StaceyTrombley, I never did get an actual response : (

Well... sent a second nudge to her other email since it's been about 6 weeks since the last. I'll be disappointed if she never responds to the full as she was a close call for my last MS and I've met her several times in person.

Update: Well, I got an auto response for this email which I didn't get for the last so... hope?
