I had marked this as a CNR but ended up getting a form rejection after 146 days.

Queried early July 2017.

Received a form rejection on 7 July 2017.

Received an identical form rejection on 10 November 2017.

I don't know how these things happen, but I know that one rejection is plenty!

Form letter
Update: I had sent a nudge on 6/22, so when I got the rejection on 6/29, I assumed that it was in response to the nudge. Received another rejection letter today, 10/26/17, in response to the nudge. Guess it's better than no response at all!

Also, i had already queried her with another of my novels just 10 days ago!

Lotsss of other agents have told me that the characters don't shape up for this one, so hopes aren't high, but you never know!
