I received a "personalized reject", which after reading through the comments I realize it was a canned response worded carefully to seem that it wasn't. That being said, I will continue to hone my craft.

Even though Marisa (or her asst. Amy who signed the email) rejected my manuscript, she offered very good and much-appreciated advice on how to improve the story. Best rejection email ever.

EQ after full request at conference: 04/14/2019
Nudged: 08/20/2019

She's been busy planning her own writer's conference and attending others, so hoping to hear back. We had a great meeting at the conference I attended, so I'm reluctant to CNR since she requested a full, expressed a lot of interest, and we had such a wonderful rapport.

Will update if anything comes back.

We felt the time jumps in your opening pages pulled us out of the story. Removing them or finding a stronger way to transition between scenes may help this.

ER: 8/8/19 -- She made a couple of comments. Funny thing, I didn't think I'd hear back as I had been skipped over a whole bunch of times. You never know!

@ktwills79 - I'm in the same boat. I submitted 74 days ago, sent a follow up email, and have yet to hear back. With Premium, I can see her Timeline for responses, and she appears to be skipping all over the place. There are some that haven't been followed up on as far back as February, and then some who've gotten answers as recently as 6 days ago. I don't think there is much rhyme or reason to the order in which she's responding, which is about as comforting as getting a tooth pulled, but still. Just hang in there, we'll hear back eventually :)

I'm a little confused--it seems that people are mostly hearing back in about 2 months on their queries. I submitted mine 70 days ago (thank you query tracker) and have yet to hear anything! I've even sent an updated message notifying her of an offer of publication, but still have heard nothing. I'm wondering if mine somehow got lost, but don't know if that's possible when using query manager?
