Nudged Agent today auto response received saying that she is recovering from a concussion.

I am recovering from a concussion, and working at a reduced capacity. Thank you in advance for your understanding of any delays in my response times.

Hi ____,

Thanks so much for your query, and for following up! I gave your sample a read, and though I really like the premise, I wasn’t quite hooked enough by the writing on a line level to feel like I’d be the best agent for you. In any case, wishing you the best of luck, and again, thank you for the opportunity to consider your work.

Best wishes,

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.
