Sarah was SO kind and helpful, telling me exactly what she liked and didn't like about the ms. Definitely the best rejection I've gotten.

Is anyone else waiting on a January query?? I sent mine on Jan 30, and I still haven't heard a peep. I know she sometimes takes longer, but... but...

Okay, update: she took like 40 days with my query because she had really liked the premise, so she put it aside to read again (so yeah, having her take longer is actually a good thing). She ended up rejecting, though, because the writing style wasn't for her.

And thanks westhill!

Monita, I've seen interviews with her where she mentions that she sometimes responds later to queries she likes--she goes through the quick rejections first, then saves the potential yeses to read the pages when she has more time. Good luck to you, hope you are one of the yeses.

Thanks so much, HeatherAnne! I'll do that! I'm at 36 days--so I'll send a nudge next week. Thanks for letting me know!

Monita (and anyone else still waiting for a response): I sent a query early January and never heard anything. Her website indicates that if there is no word after 6 weeks than resend the query "it’s possible your message got lost in cyberspace." I did just that about two weeks ago (adding a short note that this was a resend after no response) and got a response today from her apologizing that my query got sorted in the wrong file.
So please try again! It was worth it!
