On 11/26/15, I've queried Jay with Chain Reaction. As of today, it's CNR. So I'll try him in the spring with Venom.

8/6/16: 4/12/16 EQ (Requery Venom)
8/5/16 CNR (No word from nudge.) Waiting to hear from Claudia Ballard.

hard to tell if the William Morris Agency really exists, according to their website anyway. has to be the poorest Agency Site on the web

Thanks Angelscribe! I'm actually going to nudge him tomorrow, 6 weeks from the date he received the new version! Fingers crossed.

Good luck Olivia. I think that's about three months since you sent it out. Maybe give him another week, since he might be still on X-mas vacation.

In August I got a detailed rejection from Mr. Mandel with the option to revise and resubmit. On Nov. 28 I resubmitted my manuscript with many changes. It's almost one month later. I will likely nudge him in the first week of the new year. Hope that's not too soon.

He's just a query, according to Agentquery.com.

Hey all - for those of you who queried Jay, did you paste in your first five pages / first chapter?

Thanks!

Go for it Olivia. I wish I had a R&R from him.

Initially queried Jay in April, got a request for full the next day.

Now, August 17th 2012, I have received a long email from Mr. Mandel that is essentially a rejection, but with the option to revise and resubmit. His comments were thoughtful, lengthy, and kind. I will certainly spend the rest of the year recrafting the manuscript and will likely resubmit when I feel it's ready. I was very pleased with his critique.

5/15/12, I queried him. Today I nudged him and heard back--it's a pass. They can't offer me representation. I'll try Mel Berger, though closed, next month.
