The website says that agents will get back to you within eight weeks. Is this not true anymore? Has anyone had any correspondence with her recently? If so, drop me a message.

FYI Dystel Goderich & Bourret does not allow you to query another agent at the agency after you have been rejected by one of them. A rejection by one is a rejection by all. I recommend waiting to query them until you 100% sure you have a winning query letter and a solid submission and then sending to your top pick, because you only shot with them.

Do resend if you don't hear from her. She apologized that my query had slipped through the cracks, so to speak.
