Kind rejection 11/28 - mentioned it got too far from reality for her, so maybe she prefers more grounded fantasy? Good luck to everyone querying her. She seems like a responsive, thoughtful agent!

Very polite step aside: 1/24/21 - FYI to those who have queried this agency, she said she is "buried with submissions and won't be able to read anything for quite some time."

@KiwiHeart I have not heard back from Jennifer Unter and I haven't queried Jen. It's been 28 days and I don't expect to hear from Jennifer Unter - my book doesn't fit her genres. I noticed someone else said Jennifer passed their query onto Jen but I'm not hopeful for that happening. Since Jennifer rarely replies to queries, idk if she even reads them to pass mine on. I'm considering querying Jen after 30 days. It can't hurt. I'm frustrated by my own stupid mistake.

I did the same thing, CSDwrites! It's been 59 days, so I'm not hopeful. Did you query Jen? I wasn't sure if it was a rejection on behalf of the agency or not.
06/09/2021 11:01 AM
I just realized that I queried Jennifer Unter when I meant to query Jen Nadol. I couldn't understand why I wasn't getting any response, even a rejection, from Jen.
Don't make the same mistake that I did!

Jen Nadol can be queried at: jen.nadol@theunteragency.com

Does anyone know if a ER or CNR from Jennifer Unter is on behalf of the agency? Or could I still query Jen Nadol. I assume not, but seems ambiguous based on their website.

ccosme722 - In her profile it says "She can be reached at jen.nadol@theunteragency.com", so I'm guessing you query with that
