Hi, guys! I am currently closed to queries. I have some from February still (ACK!) so I really need to catch up. I expect to reopen in September. Hope everyone has a good Summer.

That was fast! :D

Update 1/3/2019:
When I said "that was fast!" I apparently spoke too soon. She has had my partial for 322 days now. I emailed her back in November to make sure she hadn't just forgotten about it, and to see if I could resend her the partial, as I had revised it some since February. She got back to me and apologized for being so behind, and told me to go ahead and send her the revised partial, saying she hadn't read it yet. I went ahead and sent it, hoping that she would try and make time to actually read it. Well, I still haven't heard back. I feel like I am being strung along. If she isn't interested enough in my story to read the partial she requested nearly a year ago, I wish she'd just reject me already. :/

Update 2/19/19:
Still nothing. :/

Update 3/20/19:
CNR, and I went ahead and emailed Emily to officially withdraw my manuscript from consideration, because it has been over a year since she requested it, and I'd like to query another agent at Fuse.

It was a partial form rejection but she inserted some personal things. She said she just hadn't had good luck with MG time-travel stories, she didn't know why. I really appreciated that.

Well, I'm impressed. She'd skipped so far ahead of me, I thought I'd never get a response at all. Disappointing, but not unexpected. I've rewritten the query and the first few chapters anyway.

175 days for a form letter rejection. I can't decide if I'm impressed she bothered or not.
