Email Query: 6/28/21
Sent a nudge that I had full requests based on the submission tip that said to let them know if your manuscript was under consideration by other agents on their website: 7/28/21
CNR: 08/09/21

I CNRed this, but I think she's at least a good 3-6 months behind on queries.

I haven't heard in two months so I'm going to assume it's a no. I would love to hear just that from an agent. A three word email, 'It's a no.' So much more civilized than ghosting someone. I know a lot of agents do it but yeesh. Have a heart.

She posted this on Instagram on 4/16/21: QUERY UPDATE: I’m officially caught up on queries through 1/10/21, and partial manuscript requests will be coming soon through our query manager. If I requested a sample in 2021, hang tight - I’m working my way through those partials now. Thanks for your patience, and I hope to have more news for you shortly as I try to get caught up!

"if you don’t receive a request for further material within 4-6 weeks it means a no from the agency."
CNR @42 days on literary thriller and the rest of the agency goes on the DNQ list.
