Her Twitter feed says she is working through her inbox by genre and hopes to respond by 11/1 before she reopens to queries.

"Thank you so much for giving me the chance to consider THE CURE. 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 didn't have a clear editorial vision for the project and thus don't think 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."

hagj103kats - I queried her with other manuscripts in the past. One took around 50 days and the other over 200 days. Her response times are very long. Yes, you should be querying lots of different agencies. According to three different agents that I have dealt with over the years, the pandemic is not slowing the amount of queries they are getting, but the publishers are not buying as much as before and they are having more difficulty selling manuscripts that they have taken on.

Some agents just don't respond when they consider the query rejected, and yes it is very frustrating. Ms. Bauman did not respond to mine either, so I considered it rejected after about 56 days. I'd say try out with a different agency. Is this your first time querying in general?

I'm new at this. It's been in excess of 100 days since I submitted my query. Actually, I submitted two queries. Still no response. Is the pandemic the reason for the delay? Should I be seeking a different agency? Just asking.

Notified of offer of rep: 08/10/20
ER: 08/17/20, congratulated me on the offer though

Adult rom-com, 73k. Was listed as a genre she wants on her MSWL tweet but not in the QM form, so let's hope for the best.

CNR: August 10, 2020 (I'm assuming it's a pass at this point. She's been closed to queries for a month.)

Now that she’s closed to queries, I’m wondering if this is a CNR. Any thoughts?
Thanks @alkulseng!
Thanks @Catsamoa79!
Thank you @Khaleesi! I'll hold out for a reply too then.

Hi @MKPriest. In my opinion (not from experience with this agent), it's better to "set it and forget it." I don't know if you've ever heard that term, but when I've had requests out, I realize it's really best to let the agent get to it when he/she/they do. I think if you've got an offer on the table, that's another story. But otherwise I'd take it as a HUGE positive he/she/they requested a full and know he/she/they'll eventually get to it. Bauman is currently closed to submissions to catch up, so maybe it won't be much longer. Good luck! ;-)

She said she is running slightly behind on her reading. So if anyone is still waiting, don't CNR yet (or maybe wait a bit to nudge).

Form Query: 2/24/20
Full Request: 5/2/2020

Is there a polite way to inquire after the status of a submission? I know the world is insane right now, so I don't want to come off as rude by bothering her for an update. I'm just not sure how long it takes her to review submissions.
