@meddings - If this agent has a specific response time (i.e. typically responds within 3 months), I'd wait until after the response time passes before inquiring. Some agents skip around or hold onto manuscripts they're on the fence about :).

Does anyone know the standard protocol when it seems like your query has been skipped on the timeline? Do you requery or just kind of assume it's a pass?

6/28: Partial request after in-person pitch at Writers' League of Texas Agents & Editors Conference.
7/29: Personalized rejection. Intrigued, clearly I'm talented, but she didn't fall in love with my voice enough.
