Still no response. But I did see on the agency site she is currently closed to unsolicited queries, so she maybe catching up now.

I'm wondering if this agent is in the weeds and was immediately inundated once it was announced that she was seeking clients. I haven't heard from her either. Wondering if I should just give up and move on to someone else within her agency. Probably. But it's a shame. I thought she seemed like a good fit. Has anyone received a request (or rejection) from her lately?

Never happy when I've wasted time with an agent who doesn't reply, all the while I could have queried someone else.

I sent my query at the end of October and then resent it at the end of December. Not a peep.

Since there is zero data about this agent, is it possible she isn't really open to queries? They have a 4-week response policy or it's a no and there are no requests or responses at all?
