The agency appears to only accept exclusive submissions, so be aware of this when querying.

Just fyi, Mrs. Samantha tweeted this today:

"Hi All, please don't assume if you haven't heard from me that I've silently rejected you. I often skip over responding to queries that have promise and come back to them when I have more time to review. And I respond to all letters. #querytip"

Haven't heard back yet on query sent in late April. Wonder if I was skipped over?

I nudged Ms. Wekstein about my query sent in June and she responded within the hour: "I am still reviewing queries from the beginning of May. I appreciate your patience."

No Word and I'd like to query another agent at WH. It's been over 100days, so I'm CNR: 9/20 *just saw the 112 days below. Maybe I'll wait another 11 days before querying another at WH And, as is often the case, I received an ER the following day: 9/21
