Kind and helpful rejection letter giving both the positives and the reason she ultimately felt she couldn't take the project on. I appreciated the tone of her letter and her thoughtfulness.

Although the response time was much more than I had anticipated, I'm very glad that I queried Pam. I would definitely query her in the future. She was polite and apologized for the response time, and also gave a reason for why she was rejecting my work.

Lol she went out of her way to muddle through all of the unread queries, weeks and weeks of them, found mine specifically from 7 days ago, and rejected it.

@MorganSloan, it would prob be good to wait until after Thanksgiving to nudge.
11/23/2022 01:45 AM
@MorganSloan It doesn't hurt to nudge, especially since you've been waiting double the approximate time for a response.

Anybody nudge this agent? I've been skipped. Everything around me is red. I'm sitting at 107 days, double the 8-week timeline, but it seems she's behind. Thoughts?

Thank you for your query. I appreciate the opportunity to consider this material, however it’s not quite a fit for my list at this time. I wish you all the best in finding the right advocate for your work.
Best wishes,
