@karenleespree Send once they are open to queries again. Do NOT wait; that will only put you further back in the line.

@karenleespree I would wait until Mid-January and then resend. Give her a while to catch up on her email!

After just getting a VERY subjective rejection on my full, this full request feels pretty nice.

"Thank you for sending your manuscript XXXX and thank you for your patience as I considered it. Unfortunately, I did not fall in love with this story as much as I hoped. I must regretfully decline this opportunity to take on your representation. While I was excited by the premise of this manuscript, I didn’t connect with the voice. Again, thank you, and I wish you the best of luck as you continue to write. "

From what I've heard, it could take months for her to return an email. But when she's on, she's on!!
