@millerpl42 She doesn't read in order. Yours is probably in her maybe pile. As far as I know, she tries to respond to EVERYONE.

Marked as No Response 17 September

she's responded to everyone on either side of me so I must be one of those she skipped. She uses Query Manager so this could be changed if she updates it later

I appreciate the opportunity to review sample chapters of XXX. Congratulations on all the editor interest. This is a fantastic premise, so I can understand why they’d like to see the MS.

Unfortunately, I didn’t fall in love with the chapters in the way that I need in order to request more. I wish you the best with this book and hope another agent will feel differently. Keep querying!

@cmaron Lynnette has made a few requests past the three week mark, so your query could be in her "maybe" pile. I'm in the same boat.

Does anybody know why there seem to be a few queries she skips? The queries she seems to be responding to are now after mine, and I know that no response after three weeks is a pass, but I'm wondering why she seems to send a rejection to most people but there are the rare few that do not get an answer?
