She tweeted over the weekend that she was reading through her pile. She had over 50 likes so it may take a while!

Personal Note: This would be the second time I sent in a query to Shannon Snow because she was just so nice the last time! Hopefully, I can work with her one day! I say the second time because I withdrew the "second" query and she never even got it. lol

Something nice to hear: Never lose hope, tomorrow could be the day you have been waiting for.
Good luck everyone!

@Roll_4_Initiative Not going to lie, that sounds really interesting! Hope you get picked up! I'll read that! Idk, I love haunted house atmospheres.
@MorganSloan Fingers Crossed! :D Good luck!!! Yay! <3 <3 <3

@morningstar21 She skipped over mine as well, though it hasn't been as long as yours. But she's responded to many after mine too.

I noticed some of these queries received fast replies & mine is up to 100 days? Is this the same for anyone else?

Shannon has always struck me as a kind and professional agent. Her prompt responses and (sometimes personalized) messages stand out to me.

Personalized rejection on 10/29/22. Very kind, offering to take another look if I reduce word count and/or decide to split into two novels. First personalize rejection I've received, so I'm very appreciative (despite the rejection)!
