“Thank you for your query and sample pages of (TITLE). Unfortunately, I don't feel this is the right fit for my list at the moment, so I'll have to pass. Keep querying! Another agent might feel differently.”

Aww, I thought this really suited her MSWL... oh well, next query!

If you queried her at her email address, she would still be going by the agency guidelines, which state that if you don't hear back after three weeks, it's a pass. She only just started sending out rejections to queries when she switched over.

Quick question. I submitted a few days before the agent switched to "Query Manager." I noticed there have been a few responses that have come in for people who submitted after the date I submitted. Curious if the emailed submissions might be forgotten/lost? I hate to contact agents to nudge, so figured I'd ask here first. Thanks!
