Rejection Letter

Postby T.A.Rodgers » Wed Jan 24, 2018 3:32 pm

What's your longest time lapse for a query letter rejection? I received a rejection today on a query letter from February 1, 2015. Almost three years. :lol:

Wow - that is a long time. I received rejection letters fairly quick... not as quick as how girls rejected me in high school, but close.

Terry, you ought to write back and thank the agent for her quick response. :D

For magazines, I think I have one story I haven't gotten a response on for a few years, and the mag is still active.
For agents, I think they've responded within 6 mo. or not at all.
