thanks, @PamCemen!
This is both interesting and awkward. As I assumed it was a no reply means no situation for me, I just closed this one out and sent a query to another agent at Jabberwocky... Odds are seriously against them both being interested in my mss, but I still like to be professional and avoid that kind of query faux pas!

@thelightwillsurelycome I'm not sure. I'm still waiting on a query from November (resent 3 weeks ago at her request since she hadn't seen it).

@Laura_WA aw <3 Good luck on your new WIP! I'm about to shelve this current MS, too

Query on 1-6, rej on 3-20. This was the very last one, boys and girls. I had two requests out of more queries than I can remember, and I guess I'm letting it go. SIGH. Lol. The good news is that the new one I'm writing is probably more commercially viable... but it's still not as good as the other. Ah well. I'm about 10 chapters into the new one. Good luck, everyone!

Query Check in on February 18. She had me marked as "take another look," and I sent in the revised opening pages. Haven't heard back since. Should I check in again?

Forgot to note when I queried her:
1-06-2020, no response yet. Hoping that's good? IDK.

@lettucewrites I may just do that! Thanks :)

@jennadevillier I didn't get a confirmation (I sent my query on 02/03, no reply yet), but it looks like she's answered some January queries. I have no idea if she answers them in order, but since she does seem to reply to people, you can probably give her a gentle nudge just to make sure that your query didn't get lost.

Did anyone get a confirmation of receipt when they queried Lisa? I'm still waiting on a query from 11/5 and I'm wondering if it went through. She's probably just a bit behind.
