Queried 10/6/23
Nudged (offer of representation): 5/10/24
5/22/24: Responded via QueryManager with nice note of congratulations and thanks for letting her know. Said my book sounded like a fun read by "timing didn't work out," so she would bow out.

@jmayerovitch Yes I think you're right! If you take a look at 3/1 (when I submitted), all the replies are up top, and the no replies on bottom. Then 3/2 she starts (or seems to start) replying again for a spell, then the rest of the 3/2s are "no reply."

I wish I knew whether she was just done with 3/1 or if she intends to come back. I'd love to query another person at this agency, but I don't want to lose my chance with Bridget.

I will say one thing: this agent gets INUNDATED with queries!

12/13/2023: Just wanted to update. She never replied to my query (3/1/2023) and never responded to my nudges.

1/05/2024: Queried Bridget my next project, an adult romantasy.

3/20/2024: No response to either of my queries.

4/16/2024: Notif of Offer of Rep

4/29/2024: Full Request

5/6/2024: Pass (The day before my due date! She promised she'd read in time and she didn't disappoint.)

She's apparently doing what many agents have started to do: Open for queries the first week of each month, then close to queries until the next month. Makes sense as a way to control one's inbox.
