Thank you so much for the chance to read your work. While there was much here I admired, I'm sorry to say I don't think I'm the best fit for this project at this time, but I wish you all the best.

Thought it was personalized but the same response is repeated in other comments.

ER 9/23/20 note was exactly what was sent to another writer below. But, a very quick less than 24 hr turnaround, which was nice.

The QT stats suggest she will respond within 18 days if she's interested, so I'm going to go ahead and close this one. Best of luck to everyone still being considered!

Wrote a nice note saying the found a lot to admire but wasn't the right person to represent it. I appreciate that she got back to me so quickly, that she got back to me at all (some don't), and took the time to be encouraging.

Thank you, americantypo. Your advice is sound and you are right on all counts. All you can do is give it your best shot and know when it's time to move on.
Best of luck in your agent search!

Katemc, you can try tweeting at her too; I had sent a partial, did not receive confirmation, even after following up to ask if she received it, then responded to something she tweeted. The same day she responded with confirmation. Could be your emails are in her spam, or she legit just isn't seeing them or forgot. Who knows.

It's depressing to get ghosted by an agent; I've had that happen with fulls, and its frustrating, but also, when you think about it: do you want someone to represent you if they ignore your emails like this? I have a partial out with her now and will follow up in a month, but if I don't get a response and get nothing from her on twitter either, I'm not so sure she'd be an agent I'd want to work with.

I never heard back from her even after a couple of nudges. I see people who were asked to submit partials both before and after me have received replies from her. I don't know what to think.
