Requested full manuscript. Rejected two months later. She said it wasn't a genre she usually represents -- adult contemporary fantasy -- which we both knew from the outset, but we each took a shot. Ultimately, it didn't work out. Still, she was friendly and professional.

I booked a 15 minute consultation + 10 page read with Stephanie on Manuscript Wishlist. She gave me some excellent feedback and helped me workshop a few problems I was having with the voice in my novel, and at the end she said she would like to see the full text if I was interested in querying her. Full manuscript sent 12/08/20, confirmation of receipt same day.

Fingers crossed!

Form rejection : 10/09/2020 Sent by an assistant.
Like KellyE and JBL246, the response contained zero information and was basically a form rejection 'project is not a good fit for us' template which is not what one would expect after a full request.

Does anyone know how long to wait before nudging Stephanie on a full request? I looked on her agency's website, but I couldn't find any nudging guidelines. Thank you!

Like KellyE, I got a form rejection with zero feedback from an assistant after a partial, then a full request, and then waiting 6 months. 'Not a good fit' comment after all this time is pretty poor. However, I am learning to expect less and less from this process. Likely time to move on to trying small presses.
