Submitted to her years ago after enthusiastic result for a full. Over 18 months, nudged her three or for times, always received a promise to hear back soon, then totally ghosted. Shady? I can't say but rude AF!

FR 11/19, sent same day

I was a little hesitant with what others have said here and definitely not holding my breath for a response but figured worst case they just dont get back to me. Oh well.

@LightofBeauty Yeah, there were some issues with two different emails that totally confused me and made me kinda uncomfortable. I get that beggars can't be choosers and all that... I get we writers feel so lucky when an agent asks to see our full but that doesn't mean we are supposed to take whatever behaviour they dish out. I am deeply considering sending them an email and saying 'I would like to withdraw my MS. Please delete if you still have it.' Writers make the industry move, we should be treated with consideration. Simply because it's the nice thing to do. I am not impressed by this agency and I wouldn't recommend anyone to submit to them. Yes, they are quick to request but after that........silence, disregard, shadiness. My experience. Be warned.

@ DreamerBeliever - same boat, and same vibe. Plus, when you look on their site and take a peak at their PublishersMarketplace, there are hardly any current deals or recent releases. They have an impressive client list, of course, but with so little activity even from those clients, makes you wonder how they really run their business and if they're actually aggressively selling books. I'm not confident in their ability to sell my book, at all, and I'm not impressed by how they're running their business these days either. Very weird indeed. and overall, extremely off-putting.

I regret sending this agency my full. They don't read fulls. It's been months. They don't take nudges seriously either. It's very weird. I want to pull my MS. Cause I don't really trust how they go about their business for other complex reasons.

EQ: 5/26

FR: 5/27 To my surprise (and on a Sunday too, AND on a holiday weekend), Jennifer forwarded her query to Lucinda Karter, and Lucinda requested the full!

9/17 going to CNR Lucinda by 10/1. All I've gotten is many thanks to my sending my full and to my nudge, but that's it, not a word as to if she's even reading or has read. Clearly this agency doesn't prioritize reading all the fulls they request, and has a thing for stringing authors along. Moving on.
