Ugh. So, a year ago, I got a rejection on a full from an agent, but with an invitation to revise and resend. So I've spent the past year revising, and tonight I decided I was finally ready to jump back into the query pool. And I go to look up this agent, and... she's gone. I can barely find a trace that she ever existed. There's no mention of her leaving her previous agency. Her profile is gone from Query Tracker. Her Twitter seems to be AWOL. The best I can find is a site that archived her genre preferences, but that just has a note that as of last October you can't submit to her anymore. And obviously an agent who disappears off the face of the earth is not the ideal agent, but... I liked her. She seemed really nice. And I've spent the past year planning how I would resubmit, and how she would take another look at my MS and this time go all in. And now I'm back to square one with no idea if any agents will bite. Obviously, I'm querying other agents, but, yeah, that wasn't how I was expecting things to go. Not expecting any solutions (because what solutions are there other than "query other agents"?), but just felt the need to vent a bit.
Bugger. Well, fingers crossed that my revamped query and tightened first pages will get some bites.
