Maybe this is a silly question, but for those of you who have submitted to Zoe Plant, what was the formatting of your "first 10 pages of your novel" in the body of your e-mail? Did you keep to the standard 1.5 or 2.0 line spacing, or did you single space? Did you include a cover sheet with contact information? Any help would be appreciated!

I know it was a form rejection, but probably one of the kindest form rejections I've received. Was worth noting.

Zoe kindly got back to me after I nudged her about my query following around a 50 day wait - she responded a week later to say she'd passed on it (forwarded the original message) but I hadn't seen the message - it's a weird one as I was checking my spam and didn't see it in there either so wonder if there may be some problem with the agency's emails or with my email provider.

Ms Plant seems like an excellent agent. I’m not sure if some emails aren’t getting through the spam filter as I had/ have a full manuscript request from her and sent my manuscript over in early August this year and I’m not sure it arrived.

My follow up emails reporting a publication offer from a independent publisher also didn’t get a response - this isn’t the first time I’ve had the issue with my emails, so it’s possible the issue is with my email account somehow, but worth being aware of just in case. Just a shame it happened at this time, and with an excellent agent who I think would have been brilliant to work with.

Stats, just for people’s interest:
YA folklore fantasy - 85k words
Query after like in #JWPitchfest: 4th Aug 2022
Full Manuscript Request: 4th Aug 2022
Manuscript sent same day.
Followed up with initial notice of offer in August, and then sent a subsequent email 21st September.

Wishing everyone luck!
