@pacatrue I’m not sure that’s strictly true (although it could be), Ramona had some sort of fellowship and was shadowing for the last year (9 months? Whatever). I have seen before that when someone in that situation becomes an agent or is close they begin to jointly represent authors with someone more experienced and then branch out. It’s entirely possible (and indeed sounds like, from other tweets) that Ramona is completely independent at this point.

@arthur0207 Ramona tweeted about how she has offered rep to an author in conjunction with another Bookends agent. So, had to follow her tweets to hear.

@unrealismbooks - how did you discover she appears to be working in collaboration with another agent? Attempting to learn more of this industry. Thank you!

I queried Nov 8 and no reply...just kinda waiting it out. She seems to be taking on people in collaboration with another agent so maybe they are picking queries together since she's new

I'm in the same boat: queried on Nov. 9, still haven't heard anything. Good luck, everyone. Fingers crossed it means we're all in the 'seriously consider and probably reply with a request' pile.

@Mynamewastaken I also queried her on the 9th with no outcome yet. However, it is the holidays so I'll just wait it out.

Hi Mynamewastaken - I queried her on the 9th and have not received a response, however, I checked the Timeline and she did reject three queries submitted on 11/9 on 11/21, 11/23 & 11/26. Just guessing, but I think she is jumping around a bit on the submissions. Would hope no news is good news, but after 10 months of sending out queries and trying to learn the publishing world, I believe ghosting sadly has become the norm. Good luck to you!

Has anyone that queried her on or before the 9th received a response yet? I see a few of us queried her around that date, and none of us have responses... Others who queried after that date seem to have responses. I am wondering if there was a glitch in the system?

Lovely form rejection saying it’s not a fit but she’s hopeful I’ll get an agent and to consider her for a future story.
