Data explorer indicates she's clearly past my query in her queue, and with only a 1/3 response rate, I think CNR is a safe bet. (Will update if I receive a response.) Onward and upward!

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.
