A year and a half ago, I queried my first novel and went through three rounds of edits with a particular agent before she finally passed. She did, however, encourage me to send her my future projects.
Now I’m ready to query my second novel, but she has recently closed to queries except for those requested through contests and conferences. Do you guys think our previous interaction constitutes a request, and that I should go ahead and query her? If so, should I call it a “requested query” or something similar in the subject line to make sure it doesn’t get deleted automatically? Or would querying her when she’s closed be a big faux pas?
Always appreciate your help. Thanks!
