Re my last comment: judging by the QT forum, it looks like “submission history” most likely means to publishers, which makes sense.

Their website says to include “submission history” in your query. Does anyone know what, exactly, they’re wanting here? I could say that I sent out a batch of queries a few months ago and got some requests and that I’m sending out another batch and have one request so far, but that seems a bit general. Or do they mean submissions to publishers? Giving out the names of agents who have requested submissions feels a bit intrusive to me, but publishers I can understand. Thanks!

Update 10/19: With the five month mark now passing, I think their version of soon may be different than mine.

Somewhat personal e-ject from E. Griffin, in response to original query/request for full in March/April.

Revised version sent 4/26 (confirmed receipt that same week)
ER: 9/4 - A form rejection letter came in response to a check-in sent earlier in August. It was entirely unclear if they were sending a form query response to my check-in (referred to them not wanting to pursue my 'query', specifically) or if they were passing on the manuscript. I inquired, and it appears they were in fact responding to my manuscript. Also, the response came from Rachel Letofsky, not Sally Harding or their submissions assistant, Elizabeth.
