Just listened to Jennifer Laughran's podcast (Literaticast) and it said that we can NOW query more than one agent at their agency. Just a three agent limit. Yeah, man!

Not sure why Robin in the comment below pasted that information here. It's on Andrea Brown's website and many other places online. I was looking for comments related to submissions like acceptances, types of rejections and time frame responses. Just saying.

Jennifer represents authors, illustrators, and author-illustrators who bring a distinct point of view to their work, and who tell stories with multiple layers. In middle grade and YA both, her heart beats faster for stories that cascade from a mind-expanding premise. She also loves survival stories and losing herself in Dickensian sagas (WOLVES OF WILLOUGHBY CHASE!), and enjoys watching characters puzzle their way through problems. She has a special soft spot for middle grade about resilient kids sorting out the messiness of life.

I submitted my Picture Book through their form which said I would get a confirmation of "received" to my email. But so far, I haven't, so I don't know if she has even received my form or not.

I’m guessing she’s ignoring the Jan. queries, based on the info. on here. It doesn’t make sense.

EQ - 3/4/21 (online form)
ER - 4/18/21

A very kind, personalized rejection. She also shared my work with her colleague who did not like it enough to sign me but read my query and excerpt too, which was also very kind even if ultimately the news was bad. They seem like nice people over there!

Has anyone who queried through query manager sent a nudge to her regular email? I sent a nudge through the form, but I wonder if she reads her regular emails before reading the query manager queries.

JustinJoseph -- I heard back after 74 days. She apologized for the delay. I think she is quite backlogged.

ER: 3/14/21 - really nice, helpful, personalized rejection! It does hurt to know I was so close, but I'm super grateful!

Received a personalized rejection after 221 days, but it was without a doubt the kindest rejection I have ever received. Plus, I'd made a rookie mistake and submitted a novel with a word count that was certainly too high for a debut, but she still took the time to respond to the content of the story rather than just give an automatic "no" based on word count alone, and I really appreciate the time she took to do that.
