Erin, I don't think it can hurt. What I am wondering is, what happens to the query and sample pages I sent to the first agency? Does someone open it and read, despite Donna being gone or does it go in the trash? Just wondering if I should query someone else there.
I sent Janet Reid a query last week and she told me that due to time constraints that she had to pass but felt that Donna would be a great choice. Has anyone heard from this agent and is this type of referral something I should mention in a query?
Has anyone heard Donna at her new agency? I mailed her my submission before she moved, then I re-queried her email at her new agency. Curious if anyone knows the response time.
On Priot Group website there's a message on Submissions page saying: 'Submissions are temporarily closed while we catch up on those currently in the office. Sorry for the delay, as soon as we can we'll open the door again.'
I've no idea how long this message has been up or if it's still in effect, since I decided to query Donna based on her Agent Query page and I hadn't looked at the submissions section of the Priot website beforehand. Anyway, I emailed my query yesterday and I got the same auto-responder:
'Please allow 6-8 weeks for a response.'
So, I'm assuming that they are open for querying again despite the notice on the website, since otherwise I would have thought the auto responder message would say something different. But who knows, will have to wait and see.
Did you guys ever hear back from Donna?
