Query sent: 02/02/22
Sent polite nudge: 04/09/2022
Query Tracker marked the query CNR, but I received a response on 08/29/2022.
Personalized rejection: Ms. Varnado felt the concept was "promising" and the submitted pages were "very well-written", but the content was not suitable for her for a few elaborated reasons, and so she had to pass.

Though the response was a longtime coming, I do sincerely appreciate the feedback and constructive criticism. I understand the staggering demands of an agent, being swamped by hundreds of queries. Thankful for the personalized feedback, a rarity in these days. Thank you, Ms. Varnado.

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.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
