EQ 2/2/18 (Requery Venom)
FR: 5/9/18 (I originally nudged her three months ago,but she told me she was in a car crash with her husband. But when I nudged her yesterday, she said if I like, I could send her additional material and she would get back to it as soon as she can.) :-)
Full sent on 9/19/18 via email.

Congrats Florida! I didn't get an exclusive full request via snail mail.)

FloridaGal007, Jill just sold a book in a similar vein to mine so I was researching her and see she wants MSs printed out and sent. While I know there are a few old schoolers who do this, I think I'll pass as well. Makes me wonder how much she's kept up with the times. She also has no website.

*update 7/16 - I opted not to send her my MS, despite her requesting it. I don't want to pay for printing & shipping, nor am I particularly keen on working with an agent who would request an exclusive read of a paper copy anyway. A tough call for me, but I'm going with my gut and not pursuing this one.

2/21 EQ
3/9 FR - "Your novel sounds intriguing. I work alone, therefore I read on an exclusive basis (two weeks) so if no other agent is currently reading your manuscript, please forward it along, with a SASE should you wish it returned, to my POB..."

Obviously thrilled with the request, however, another agent does have my full so I can't send anything to Jill right now. Also, sort of annoyed that I need to print my MS (this isn't cheap) and mail it. I feel like that's a dead industry trend...?

After 10 months - I nudged and she passed. I don't know if she ever read the ms.

Queried in person: Aug 9, 2017
Full request: Aug 26, 2017
She indicated it would be a LONG TIME BEFORE SHE READS IT.
nudged: December 2017. She hadn't read yet.
as of May 11, 2018, still no response

Floridagal007 - It is never a good idea to give an exclusive. Extremely limiting for you while querying. Also - printing out a manuscript? Very old school. I am thinking about pulling my Full.

The bad news is that she said she reads manuscripts on an exclusive basis only. And to send it to her only if no one else was considering it. Since several other agents are looking at it, I guess I'll have to pass on her. :(
