Sent a query mid July and after months, had set the project aside to research for another. Miraculously, I got an email on 12/31 saying she wanted to read the first ten pages--even after I had forgotten to paste them in the body of the email!

I'm not expecting much, but it was quite a nice surprise!

Query sent: 7/16/2020
Request for ten pages: 12/31/2020

Rejected: 1/13/2021 - It was a very kind slightly personal form and I appreciate the compliments. However, I had decided months ago to shelve this project and have been working on another that I am VERY excited about!

I sent a query to Ms. Haley today, too, andyscontras. According to Marsal Lyon's website, all the agents at this agency are currently open to queries except Patricia Nelson.
