Got an email back that she is not taking new clients at this time:

"Thank you so much for thinking of me as you query for your next agent. I'm afraid that I'm a bit at capacity at the moment and unable to take on new clients at this time, but I wish you nothing but the best in your search for the right home for THIS IS HOPE and the rest of your work!

emailed query 1/28/23
nudge with offer 2/7/23
full request 2/12/23 from literary associate Sophia
enthusiastic and complimentary response 2/13/23 from Sophia, saying she's finished reading it in one sitting + asking for synopsis and available times for a call -- but followed by 2/15 follow-up stepping aside and expressing regret that she doesn't have time before the 2/20 deadline to muster in-house support, which is understandable.

Nudged with an offer: 1/31
Incredibly kind step aside from literary associate, Sophia: 2/10

"First, congratulations on your offer! What an exciting time in your writing career. Your sample pages were so wonderful, but I'm afraid that the start of the year has been a bit overwhelming and so for the sake of not holding up your decision, we will be stepping aside. That said, we are absolutely thrilled that we'll be able to see [REDACTED] on shelves someday soon. Best of luck on your publishing journey. You already have two fans in us!"

I'm probably going to close this one out too. It's sad... in 2012 she take liked my work and requested it.

Did anyone get an auto response? I sent two queries, (one mentioning it was a repeat because I didn't get the auto response) and neither got a response. I copied the email right of the website.

Update: I recent on Monday (mentioning it I'd sent the night before, and apologizing if it was a duplicate) and finally got the auto response. I'm thinking it had something to do with it being on the weekend! Schedule send is my advice. Thanks for the help!

I'm just going to close this one out as well... it's been 67 days without an answer so I think I've been rejected.

@bradleys5235, I received an auto response. Did yours go into a spam folder perhaps?
Another option is there might be a general email for the agency where you can ask if the query was received. Just a thought and good luck!
