Full request: 08/05/22, sent same day
Notified of offer: 10/25/22, gave deadline of 11/09/22
Reply: 11/02/22, apologised for taking so long, is still reading and hopes to respond before deadline

Lina said in her email that she was behind on reading subs due to lots of client work and in person events eating up more time than expected.

11/06/22: Very kind step aside, already has something similar on her list but liked what she read.

Many thanks for sending us your submission.

We’ll get to it as quickly as we can.

If we’d like to see the whole manuscript, we’ll be back in touch within 4 weeks.

If you don’t hear from us in that time, please assume it’s not quite right for us at the moment.

(And, we’re sorry, but we don’t have time to give feedback on work that we don’t offer to represent.)

Best wishes from The North

As a general rule, she would not offer representation to US-based authors since they are better served by US-based agents, except in the very rare situation where their story ought to originate from the UK.

MG Fantasy 68k
Queried: 5th Sept
Rejected: 6th Sept
Lovely, personalised response that advised she is only looking to take on a maximum of one other MG author, and although she liked the concept, she wasn't quite grabbed enough to feel like the right agent for me.
I appreciate that and her kind words.
Whoever she signs will be a lucky author ;-)
