To request 'exclusive queries' is such bad form. Shame on her. And just because she wants them, it doesn't mean you have to accept. Query others.

Not sure what "exclusive queries" means. What I've sent queries but at this point they are CNRs? Does that mean I can't Q her? Or does she mean don't send any more Q's out if you Q her until after you hear back from her/the time period is up?

Edited to add: I'm thinking she means that queries should be treated like an exclusive full, meaning if you Q her and someone else asks for pages in the meantime, you can't send them until the exclusive Q timeline is up, and also not to send any more Q's after you send her the "exclusive Q."

I'd love to query her but to say they have to be "exclusive" feels alienating. Why have authors put their careers on hold for a very slim "Maybe"?
