It seems like she usually responds pretty quickly if interested, so I'm closing this one out. Good luck to everyone else!

Nudged: 7/29/20 because of a SFFpit pitch like from a colleague of hers.
Rejection: 8/5/20. Looks like she missed my original query. Might be worth checking in on this one, if you've CNRed recently!

CNR 6/21/20 They don't have time to tell the author, but they have time to register with the Trackers. Thanks, agents, you really care about us.

Updating some queries I made back in November/December--likely CNR at this point.

KristenH: Most but not all. My novel is a YA romantic suspense, at 23,000 words, 192 pages, and I've had 4 full requests so far. Mine is written in verse-like vignettes, though.

LSalt1, most agents won't accept novellas or novels under 50K words. Do your agent research.

From the website: "Do not query more than one agent at Harvey Klinger, Inc. at a time."

Yet another agent with an atrocious response rate and a website that says not to submit to anyone else at the agency until you hear back. I'll wait another thirty days and then send to the other agent on my list, anyway.
