I just got a rejection...
 
Wow,

I just got a reply back from an email query I sent to a company. I sent the query in April of 2006. It took them a 1 1/2 to get to me. This is, so far, the longest time it has taken to get a response from a company. I wonder if they were cleaning out their inbox, and came across my email?

What has been the longest time between emailing a query and getting a response that anyone has experienced?

If you're not worried about burning bridges, email them back and say:

That's okay, I sold this script last year.

If only that were true...:(

A writer I know once sent a manuscript to a publisher. She waited and waited, and eight months later she gave them a call. The manuscript had been used to prop up a table leg. "It's just the right size," they told her.

She went on to become one of the top writers in the UK and is now a Dame.

Did she use that as a cover blurb? "Perfect for propping up a table leg!"

Actually, the company that had it eventually published it, and her career was launched. But it is a good blurb (and it made a funny story when I went to interview her).

I've gotten at least two responses that were over a year.

As things change, they also stay the same.

Even though I did not break my 1.5 year response time record, I just got a rejection from a company after 1.02 (the 0.02 is for a week) years. Again probably someone cleaning out their email box.:rolleyes:

The other day my manager told me she had just received a script request from a query she sent to a prodco. on behalf of a client FIVE YEARS AGO. Yes. Five years. She was cracking up and said, "This must be some kind of record." Indeed I believe it is... :D
