@queserasera I didn't get a confirmation email for my form query last week either - I'm not sure if you're supposed to get one? It was mentioned a few times in the comment thread but I'm not sure if that's still the norm :S

Idk how to tell her it's already in her queue or the additional editor interest bc idk where everyone is finding her email? I just used the form on the website but I never got a confirmation and I'm not even sure the query went through tbh

A really kind, encouraging, personalized rejection. I think Sarah's a lovely agent -- I hope you consider querying to her! Good luck!

@beege25 she generally doesn't respond. I've queried her before.

This is a case where I can't tell if the agent generally doesn't respond, or if since she doesn't use QM, people just don't update their query status manually?

Marked my query CNR at 24 days; looking at timeline, it seems a response of any kind is unlikely. Just trying to be realistic for my own sake. Good luck to others!

@colbywilkens - How were you able to nudge, if you don't mind?

edit: Super helpful, thank you so much and congrats! :D

@queerying I found the agencies general email I think under contact us? I just sent a nudge that way and Sarah responded next day.
