@kmisch I didn't get one either. I queried 35 days ago.

@kmisch, I only queried her 15 days ago, so I checked back through my email and I don't see any sort of confirmation either.

I can't remember if I received some form of acknowledgment of receipt of my query. Did everyone else? If you did, what form was it in?

I can't seem to find it and my query is quite old but now I am worried she did not actually receive my query.

Having to go through this and fix the cut and paste formatting on the form took 30 min. I tried various ways to try to get formatting to carry over, but to no avail.

I made the same choice as you, then fretted about it. When I had the time, I did the same thing in another form and took the time to fix it with proper spacing and indents. I did leave the paragraphs single spaced because that was how they pasted. Then I copied the way it was in the form and kept it in a document to paste into the form the next time. Now, my first five, or first twenty, or first three chapters paste the way I want them to. I also did this with my query letter since it also pastes a bit wonky.

Form Query: 11/18/22

I pasted my first three chapters in the designated box. The format went a little crazy. Some double spaces between lines, some single. Some indented paragraphs, some not. It would have taken me an hour to fix it . . . so I just let it and trusted that I wouldn't be penalized. Anyone else have this issue? Should I have taken the time to go through ever single line and make it uniform?

Submit an online form. One of the agency’s Instagram posts confirmed they will “return to work” after the new year. Don’t give up, if you haven’t received a response yet.

I posted the above statement in January of this year, so the agency should now be open for submissions already.
