Nudged with Offer Of Representation: 10/6/19
She responded immediately and said she'd get back to me within the two-week timeframe.

10/16/19--Kind step aside. She had really kind words to say about the writing, but admitted she was too swamped to "delve into the manuscript in the close read I prefer before offering representation." Sounds super nice.

From her twitter: "I've been gifted with a flood of queries in recent weeks, but now I need to take the time to review them all. So, starting 10/21 I will be closed to unsolicited queries through the end of 2019. If you're planning to submit, make sure you get your query in soon!"

I got the response to my query from Ms. Bauman today. Although she rejected my manuscript, she was gracious, and I was grateful for her quick reply (5 days). (63,000 Thriller)

79,000 words - YA Fantasy - Kind of a surprise to get a response at all. The usual form rejection: Didn't connect. Thanks for playing. Moving on.

I sent Erica a query for my YA Fantasy on 9/11 after she liked my pitch on Twitter (pitmad). She responded rather quickly on 9/20, declining with a formal response. I did notice that I had accidentally clicked that my manuscript had been previously shown to publishers. It hasn't. Perhaps that error made a difference, perhaps no. I don't think I will follow up, but, overall she was very quick and efficient. That is helpful, being that responses can be glacially slow.

YA Fantasy : 102,000 words.

Form letter:

"It’s clear that you’ve devoted a lot of hard work to this project, and your passion comes through in your writing. However, while there is a lot to be commended, I struggled to connect with the manuscript in a meaningful way, and therefore don’t believe that I would be the most effective champion for your book.

Please remember that the publishing industry is subjective, and another agent or editor may feel differently. I’m sorry I don’t have better news for you, but I wish you all the best on your road to publication."
