UPDATE! Full request after CNR! 07/19/2021

@maryjanedarling I actually just spoke to her a few minutes ago! I had CNR'ed her, but afterward I was advised to hire an editor and have completely rewritten my manuscript. I let her know via a nudge, and she said she would be happy to read the revised manuscript. She really is a lovely person, she even gave me some title comps that I didn't know about!

Form Query 7/09
I am in a terrible situation -- my book was published on June 15, but my publisher just announced he's closing. I really want this project to go on, so I went ahead and queried Colleen.
On 7/13, she responded:
I’m not sure I can help with this one. I’m so sorry! I’m afraid I don’t know any publishers who’d buy a book that’s already been published. If you can get your rights reverted back to you, you’d likely do well publishing this yourself.
I loved the sample, and I think you’re a talented writer. Do you have any other manuscripts ready for submission? I’d love to see your next work!

I'm grateful for such a response.

Just asking, is what happened to Catsamoa79 a fluke with her not sending an email, or do i need to keep checking the query manager link?
