I received a rejection today on a query letter from February 1, 2015. Almost three years. 😆 January 25, 2018 at 2:09 am #655435 Anonymous 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.

Let us know what happens.

For agents, I think they’ve responded within 6 mo. or not at all. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
