nice that at least you get an auto-confirmation of submission!

Since she’s switched agencies, it looks like no reply means a no from the full agency. If you didn’t hear back, did you nudge for a rejection or take it as one so you couldn’t send to other agents as P.S Literary?

Hi Erin,

Thanks so much for your submission. I really liked this premise and think that [TITLE] is a brilliant title for a project about... . However, right now in the picture book space I'm primarily looking to work with author-illustrators, so I don't feel like I'm the right fit to represent you. I hope that this project gets scooped up soon though!

Wishing you all the best,

I submitted a query to this agent and only realized-after hitting "send"-that I forgot to include the book's word count! I considered re-sending the query, or sending a follow-up email, but am not sure if I should. I'm afraid that sending too many "P.S." emails could just end up annoying her worse than the initial slip, and I figure if she's really grabbed by my query, that small omission should not be a deal breaker. Then again, I hear agents all the time stress the word count as one of the most important things in the query, so I'm not sure what I should do: Send a follow-up email, or let it go and assume she will follow up on the word count issue if interested. .

Picture Book

Thanks so much for your submission! There is so much charm and humor here, but unfortunately I'm currently shopping a ____ picture book so I feel like I need to hold off on other ___ projects for a while. This is a really funny take on the idea of a ____ though, so I'm wishing you all the best with querying. Hope to see this book on shelves in the future!
