5/31 EQ and 50 pages, 5/31 rec'd request for full/sent that day.
Sent nudges and resent ms. 12/13. Received apology and said she would print it out that week and read.
Nudge 2/16: no response.
Nudge 3/6: another apology and said she would print out 50 pages and read on the way home. (She had already read 50 pages on May 31.) I notice on her timeline she hasn't read other requested mss., either, unless writers aren't logging in rejections. Don't know what to think!
Today, 3/8/2018, Lucinda wrote to reject the ms. after reading the first 50 pages (which, presumably she had read back in May and then asked for the full). Writing was fine just couldn't get into the novel, i.e., a semi-form response. Almost 10 months of time...

Received a confusing form rejection from assistant 65 days after I submitted my query to Lucinda Karter:

"Thank you for sending along your query and for your patience while we reviewed the proposal. We regret, however, that we are not able to offer representation for this work."

The reason I'm confused is because I had written Lucinda Karter off as a CNR when more than 50 days had passed since I sent my query. About two weeks later, I sent a different query (same title of manuscript) to another agent there, assuming Lucinda K was not interested. This rejection doesn't mention either agent's name, only the name of the agency. So I don't know whether the rejection is from one or both agents. For now, I guess I'll assume it refers to Lucinda Karter.

EQ: May 31
ER: July 26 Form from same tired intern as Catsamoa79's. They misspelled the novel's title, but at least they included it--always appreciated! :)

Nice to get a response, obviously not a form. Must have been a tired intern or something. Read for yourself. A double negative equals a positive? Ha ha ha....

Dear Laura,

Thank you so much for sending along your query an for your patience while we reviewed the proposal. We reject, however, that we are not able to offer representation for Always Hope.
