Guess I just answered my own question, eh what? I am crazy.

[I did, by the way, research the agency after reading about it here -- so I'm not absolutely crazy, just mostly crazy.]
Thank you for the congrats!

It was a long, long journey for sure, which is why I can say I understand how just getting an auto-reply feels like something. Out of the 30+ agents I queried before I signed with Suzie, I got a reply from about 10, rejection or request. The rest... non-responders. Sighs.

Hang in there and keep sending out queries.

Good luck!

Sent a full to Suzie on 4/2 and just got the rejection today. No specifics, just "didn't love it enough." Super sad about this one. Onward ...

Ms. Coffey is reportedly retiring. Her agents are continuing as New Leaf Literary & Media.
