@flholmes I don't think you have anything to lose.

Like a lot of agents, the ones at Dunow have terrible response rates. According to their submission guidelines, they say they might respond in four to six weeks if interested, but I've tried two with no response after 8 weeks. They don't say I can't send queries to all of them at the same time, so why not? Thoughts?

Heads up, I got an auto-reply acknowledging receipt of my query, but it ended up in spam folder.

You're right, @erin_. She doesn't explicitly reject, so it's reasonable to assume she's leaving the door open to another revision/submission from you. To mix metaphors: seems like she's leaving the ball in your court to see what you'll do. Just a thought.
