@PrincessQuill..she was on Twitter today. I tweeted her asking if she was still going through June submissions so you might try to reach out to her there...

I still have a query with her from Nov and I know she says she answers all queries, but now I have a new MS I'd love her to take a look at. I tried to nudge her through email but got an auto-response saying she's using QM. Anyone have success with nudging/requerying through QM?

YA Urban Fantasy, 107k

Update:
Thank you for submitting (Redacted) for review and for your patience while I considered it. Unfortunately I am unable to offer representation at this time.

I am extremely selective with the types of projects I take on. In order for me to offer representation, I have to feel wildly passionate about a story, and that happens so rarely.

Please know that this is one opinion in a highly subjective field and another agent may feel differently. I wish you the best of luck and thank you for thinking of Thompson Literary.

All the best,

Samantha

@AmaMizu6
She stated on her Twitter that she's gone through all of her queries and if you haven't yet heard from her, it's because she's interested in your project and considering requesting to see more. She responds to all queries, email and form. She closed specifically to catch up on her maybes and make requests.
