2/14/2020 She made PR from my #Sweetheart Pitch on SavvyAuthors.com but I didn't realize she'd made the request (was expecting an email, but it was right there on the blog), so I didn't send until 2/18/2020 but there wasn't a deadline that I know of

Tweet by Lynnette on 2/19: "Query Update: I'm caught up on queries sent BEFORE Feb. 9. If you haven't heard back, it's a pass for that project. This is for unsolicited queries and does NOT include requested material."

She tweeted this today (2/19): Query Update: I'm caught up on queries sent BEFORE Feb. 9. If you haven't heard back, it's a pass for that project. This is for unsolicited queries and does NOT include requested material.

JBL246, I have the exact same reaction - the frequent solicitation of queries combined with the infrequent response to queries is irritating and a real deterrent from querying this agent in the future.

When I see agents like this one solicit queries so enthusiastically on Twitter (see yesterday), then check here and see that they never reply unless it suits them... I can't help but be irritated.
