If this hadn't been submitted via QueryManager, I probably would have CNRed this sooner. Probably a good sign for anyone else still waiting on a reply to a query they submitted a while back.

Rejection: 7/1/2021 I think I was in the maybe pile.

"Thank you so much for querying me with TITLE and your patience while I carefully read and evaluated it for my list.

After much thought, I am going to pass on this, but really appreciate the chance to consider your work and wish you all the best and much success in finding the right agent."

Yep. I closed her out way long ago just so I didn't keep checking in, but got a full request from her today. This may or may not have been the work of one of her authors who I recently became acquaintances with. Guess we'll see.

Rejection... on Thanksgiving! I don’t know if I feel worse for her or myself, but I think Ms. Fury. I mean Thanksgiving to be responding to queries?! It was polite and all, it’s just... sad.

I just got a rejection at the 89 day mark-- too bad, I was actually hoping it'd been overlooked, as it was an earlier draft, and I wish I'd waited to query her. Of course, I didn't know I needed so much revising then...
