Sent a query 02/15/15. Memoir, Single in the CIA.

Received rejection 03/23.
Your manuscript sounds like it would fit better under the genres of either New Adult or Romantic Thriller. At 44,000 words, it is a bit short for either genre.
You’ve also posted excerpts on your website. While we have taken on previously published material, we are currently looking for fresh material. If you’ve already designed a cover, you might want to look into self-publishing this title if you do not find a publisher.
We wish you much success on your author journey.

Um, so much for establishing a platform???

I queried them last August or so. Now it's January, and we are discussing a contract for my non-fiction book.
