So far my responses to email queries have been either a very quick positive or nothing.....

Since nothing means "no thanks" I'm putting those in the dead column. I'm just wondering if anyone's been getting email responses---of any kind---after a longer time, say a few weeks, month etc.

I started sending queries in april/may/june and for the most part have gotten either quick responses or nothing, however I did get three responses in December from queries I sent in June. (All email) One yes, two rejections.

With me it was pretty much fast or nothing. And by fast, I mean under three days for email.

I sent out my first batch of purely email queries at the beginning of December (I've been querying, but this was the first time I did just email). I sent ten queries. I got one request for exclusive read the next day from a powerhouse agent, and a second positive response (to read on non-exclusive basis) about one week ago. Accounting for the holidays, I guess this means one immediate and one about four weeks from the send date. Four of the eight remaining sent polite rejects, and four have not responded.

All of these were agents who encouraged email submissions.
