Requerying her for Chain Reaction. 10/31: Accidentally required her for Chain Reaction again. OOps. 3/16/12: I've heard back from her on my requery--she passed, said it's very interesting, but doesn't have time to give it the right attention for it.

They had my manuscript for a YEAR. After seven emails, I finally got an answer and they told me that they just didn't have the time to put into my book. You'd think they could have figured that out after at least 6 months.

I agree, but I also understand that they are the marketing part of this business for our work. We work together to get our work to market. Yes, you need an agent, but much more than that, you need the right agent. I passed on some good one to find the right one. Any agent that will leave you having for months isn't going to be the agent you want to work closely with to build you future as a writer.

Yes, I agree and I even sent a very nice letter inquiring on the status of my full in January and never heard back. Sometimes I think we allow ourselves to get intimidated by agents and we shouldn't. We carefully read their submission guidelines and then with trembling fingers write a personalized letter and send it hoping we have not offended them in any way by querying.Then we recieve a generic form rejection with no thought or care to our feelings. I received one once addressed to "Dear Author" I for one think the respect should be returned.

Professor's right. A year is too long. Unbelievable!

Three or four months is forever. Consider her a lost cause and move on. Six months with no response is ridiculous - a year is unbelievable.

She has had my full for almost a year response....I just hear crickets and the lonesome sound of a whipporwill.......even after I sent a note chirp.

That's good to hear Kennerson. I queried her in February and still haven't heard anything.
