Always verify agent's information before sending your query. Verify the agent's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the agent is still open to queries.

Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for agent information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).

Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the agent's website.

And NEVER give money to an "agent".

Query Guidelines

I ask that authors email me queries and cut and paste the first 5 pages of their manuscript IN THE BODY OF THE EMAIL with every query (both fiction and nonfiction). If you do choose to send me a hard copy submission, you must include your email address in your letter as I will respond to queries exclusively via email from now on. Also, please be aware that I now have a "no response means no" policy for hard copy queries ONLY, so please do NOT include a SASE. As of now, I do still reply to all email queries. Finally, please do not send unsolicited email attachments or manuscripts, as I cannot open the former or return the latter. I reserve the right to delete any email containing unsolicited attachments unread. Thank you, and I look forward to reading your submission!

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

I'm assuming no one hears back from her for at least four months from date of sending. You can nudge all you want, but she makes it pretty clear in her request letter that she doesn't care about your nudges unless it's with an offer in hand. Read between the lines.

She says "I will try to get to it as soon as possible,"

That means anytime from until the end of time.

She says "please let me know if you receive another offer so that I may have a chance to review it."

That means she won't review it unless you have another offer.

There's no getting around this. Nudging is bullshit. You get an offer, go ahead and nudge. Otherwise don't bother.

Yeah, I'm guessing I'll hear back in September, or maybe as late as October on my full manuscript, we'll see.

In case this is helpful to anyone, I originally queried her in October 2015, heard nothing, then requeried her in May 2016 after considerable revisions, and got a full request August 17. She replied to the revised query but thanked me for resending. So she's got a hell of a maybe pile. :)

Nudged twice on a full manuscript and haven't gotten a response. Going to give it another month or two before I close it out.

Looks like she took a break and is now catching up on emails. I'd guess that'll mean responses for alot of people waiting.

Dear Ms. Louise,

Thank you so much for your query. Unfortunately, however, this project doesn’t sound right for me. I encourage you to continue to submit elsewhere, and I wish you every success in your writing career. Thanks again for thinking of me.

Cordially,

Diana Fox

I guess to clarify, I got a request for the full manuscript, and I've nudged twice to follow up about it. Still hopeful! No news is good news i guess.

For what it's worth, I sent an EQ on 6/16 and got my form rejection today.

Yeah, I'm still waiting too. From 5/11. I nudged about a month ago. Not counting on a response at this point either. It will be a pleasant surprise if it happens.

If she doesn't respond, I'd resend. Still waiting on my nudge, but I'm hopeful, as I've read many say she eventually responds to everything.

Her PM info says she responds to all email queries.
EQ: 5/25/16
I'm going to go ahead and close this out. 8/01/16 (fresh month)
I sent a couple updates, though she states she replies to all queries I don't think I'll get a response and if I do it'll be a fun surprise.

Nudged about a week ago to a full novel request she's head for about three months, still waiting. Will let you all know when she responds.
