I don't have any experience with Claire, but just got a partial request from Lora Rivera on a YA contemporary query, like, within the hour I queried her. (Per their PM page, all fiction queries are to go to Lora now.) She was prompt and polite. Just sent the material off, so I'll keep everyone updated.
Got a partial request from Lora on 11/12 and just received a really nice rejection today. I don't know if she's always that nice or what, but it kind of felt good despite the rejection.
so I queried Lora Rivera back in August, and me making a mistake thought I hadn't queried her yet and requeryed tonight for the same novel. Was that a major error that I made? Or should I not be too worried about it? The worst they can say is no again right?
