She said on Twitter and her blog that she would be closing to queries in September and will reopen October 1st. This is so she can catch up on queries and requested materials.

Graywolf, she updates her blog with query stats. Right now she hasn't even finished reading May queries. Give it time.

Patrick, can Graywolf access those without a premium account, though?

Graywolf, click either the "Data Explorer" or "Timeline" tabs above for the data tracker inktruffle is referring to.

What data tracker are you referring to inktruffle?

Graywolf, she recently changed her website to be 8 weeks, perhaps more, as she's running very behind. My query with her is currently at 99 days, though she's replied to others after mine, so I did nudge her, but she's closed to queries for a few weeks while she catches up. I'm sure your reply will come soon! You can nudge her, but she hasn't touched anything in June yet according to the data tracker.

How do you nudge an agent? I sent an email query to Kelly van Sant on June 1, 2017 and I still have not received a reply. Her wait time states that she responds to all queries within 4 weeks. I did as the directions described.

Great interview.
Agreed to wait for revised query. Did not wait.
Rejected original query and 10 pages.
After interview she had asked for query and first 50.
