Worth noting that there are several questions BELOW the "upload your submission here" box that I didn't see at first! Things like logline, an author who has influenced you, and a favorite sentence of your manuscript. Just to be aware of!

Also, as of right now, I did not get a confirmation e-mail, BUT the website offered a "File Uploaded. Thank you." message complete with details of the project. So even if you don't get an e-mail, it seems to still go through.

I should have closed this out months ago. The confirmation email said to give them 3 months.

Hi, does anyone know how to reach out to Emily with an offer of rep?

@sarahmck I didn't get a confirmation email either--I queried her on 4/20/22 and haven't received a response either.

I've never had a confirmation email when querying this agent (looking at the mail server log, spam box, etc. — I truly haven't received it). Have others? It's disconcerting because without a confirmation or eventual rejection I have no idea if she's receiving my queries.

Very kind rejection saying she enjoyed the book but didn't know if she'd be able to market it.

10/1/21 Very kind rejection saying she loves my memoir and is hoping it gets published but that she doesn't sell enough memoir to really know who to market it to.

@ElianaM and @queriesnow I submitted yesterday and did not receive a confirmation email. The site did say the file was uploaded after I hit submission, but also said I would receive an email confirmation shortly. It's not in junk folder either so not sure what's up.

I submitted the form but did not receive a confirmation email so now I am not sure how to proceed. Their page says that submitting twice automatically disqualifies you. I checked my spam, not there either.

Can someone please ping me if they have this agent's e-mail? I have an offer of rep, and I'm just trying to withdraw my query. Thank you!

Feb 12: emailed via recommendation of current client
Feb 19: personalized rejection--not sure if now is the right time for this particular book but another agent might have a better approach.
