After a super helpful consultation with MS Academy, I'm revising the manuscript (protagonist changing from 27 year old to a middle-aged kick ass heroine - I'm beyond excited about this)! Jessica graciously agreed to take a look at the revision when it's ready. She's truly delightful, professional, helpful, and I've found her to be generous with her time and advice. I look forward to sending the revised MS her way!

Said my writing had some "wonderful, funny moments", referenced a joke in the novel that she particularly liked, and encouraged me to send future manuscripts her way - but she didn't have the "this is for me" feeling (like in other form rejections below). It's a pity, because I think it would be great to work with her!

I submitted my full to her in June (after sending her the first part after #DVPit in April) upon her request. She responded in August after having presumably read my full draft, and I must say her rejection letter was exceptionally kind and even genuinely helpful. I feel grateful for the time she took to consider my novel even if it didn't work out.

I had a full request from Jessica and she completely ghosted me. Never responded to check-ins, etc., even after I used some secret code and got an auto reply that I was being given "priority status." Why ask if you have no intention of reading? A full request certainly gets an author's hopes up and it's disappointing to not even receive the courtesy of "no thanks" or "I changed my mind." Too bad because she seems awfully sweet and conscientious on the front end.

I've been thinking about querying Jessica for a long time as she seems to like the sort of thing I have, but in all honesty, her Manuscript Academy, MSWL database, etc, has me worried she's juggling too many things and won't have time to read fulls in a timely manner - and what about actual repping? Checking here I see she does take a long time for full reads and at least in a couple of cases, never responded at all to them. Anyone else with fulls out with her have experiences to share?

Thanks, kojidae! It would be a real bummer if I fell into the no response category, but I'll try to stay positive and assume she's just been really busy. Good luck to you on your full request!

LoveAllBooks... I was asked by her to submit a full in April. I nudged at three months (per her guidelines). I still haven't heard anything from her, so I am hoping she is just really busy. I do see that a lot of her submissions remain open for a significant amount of time, and there are a few CNRs on submissions in her timeline, so it looks like sometimes she does just go silent.

Haven't heard back from an early April PB submission. Sent a nudge (per 3 month recommendation by her on a lit website), and still haven't heard back. Anyone else encounter this situation? Looks like everyone else has received a reply pretty quickly, so I don't know if mine got lost or what. I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I really like Ms. Sinsheimer and would love her consideration. Does she ever not respond? Should I nudge again in another month? Would love any advice! Thanks!
