I did not receive a confirmation email. This year every agent I queried had one sent back to me that my query has been received. Is this typical for this agent or was it a glitch?

ER 12/10

She sent out an email to “undisclosed recipients” and there is no “Dear (your name)”—so, she literally sent out a mass rejection to multiple people. Interesting how we writers aren’t allowed to do this kind of stuff.

EQ: 8/30/18 - out of office auto-response stating will return to email after Labor Day.

10/17/18 - CNR; it's been almost two months so for now I feel that it's proper to close this one.
