Why a rejection for a query I sent over nine months ago? I forgot I even queried this agent. I’ve (since then) been in revision mode.

So strange to get one so late. It’s been almost a year. I think I pretty much got the clue.

"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."

She had posted on twitter that she was opening for queries today.

CQ: Closing this out from my list. The agency's website says that they can't respond to everything they get, but if they like a piece they respond in 4-6 weeks.
If three months down the road Samantha picks up my piece and asks for pages, and I'm still looking, I won't say no ????

From her twitter: "If you previously submitted an email query, I will still be reviewing and responding. Moving forward, please sub to my QM!"

I, too, would like to know if I should resubmit via QM. I queried yesterday afternoon via email.

@A_Norvelli If you submitted an e-mail query, I would wait three to six months. Yes, three to six months. According to Query Tracker's reports, this includes positive and negative responses averaging 100 - 120 days. That's her response rate. Otherwise, you can submit a query through her Query Manager. Either way, I suspect a faster response isn't incoming. Good luck.
