For those of you who submitted requested materials to Susan, did you receive any confirmation that your materials were received? I sent additional PBs and summaries of WIPs to her on 7/06/21, but have not heard anything. I ran across a comment on a different site from someone who received a confirmation email after sending requested items. (Looking at Susan's timeline, it appears that she rejects some of the requested materials soon after receiving them. For the rest, she seems to take months to respond. The only quick yes I saw involved a competing offer of representation.) Wondering if it's time to follow up. Thanks!

CharlieB88, did you resend? Reading these comments, I honestly can't remember if I got an auto response. I sent mine about a month ago and have not heard back.

Update: got a full request today (June 25) and can now see I did get an auto response when I sent the query May 7. She does ask that you include the query letter on the first page of your ms, that you add a second email to your response and that you change the subject line to reflect her request. I started to compose a response but hit a glitch with Thunderbird so I composed a second one but forgot to add her second email. I saw my mistake and rectified it but then forgot to attach the manuscript. Ended up sending three different emails before I got it right. She sent a very sweet confirmation of receipt a couple of hours later. All's well that ends well! YA Speculative, 72K

@charlie_girl yes I did in the end, I found a blog post saying if you haven't received an auto-response after 5 days, resend and let them know. Got one straightaway after that!
