Hmmm, I sent a query letter in February. Does anyone know if they are an agency that passes around query letters?

Took about a month before I received my rejection. He just posted that he's going on paternity leave and will be closing to submissions for several months, beginning in June.

I previously received a rejection from Sandy Lu so I hope I'm not committing a cardinal sin by submitting to Mr. Grange. I always get confused by websites that say to submit only one manuscript to only one agent at an agency at a time. I'm never certain if that's a "no from one means no from the agency" unless I see those exact words. Sigh. Here's hoping I don't get blacklisted.

I noticed that Ben Grange is usually fast to reject queries. I submitted my query on 3/04 and have not heard from him. I received no email in my inbox nor junk mail. Should I nudge him or does he sometimes take longer to respond to queries?

Thank you so much for the opportunity to consider your work. I make a point to read every query addressed to me, and consider each with an open mind. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm the right agent for this manuscript, and I have to pass here. I apologize for the necessity of this form response, but the volume of queries I receive makes it impossible to respond individually to each of them.

Publishing is a very subjective business; what one agent rejects might be exactly what another agent is looking for, so I encourage you to keep at it! Best of luck with this and your future creative work.

I just got his rejection form letter not 10 minutes ago.
Good luck with yours!
