I queried Beth Campbell with Venom's query. I've sent Patrick info on her from the website.

1/4/13--I've heard back from Beth. She passed--not a good fit. Maybe I'll try her with CR this spring.

Personalized rejection from Beth Campbell on partial. She said she liked the first chapter, but not the second and third. Which is really interesting since I've also had comments that the pacing doesn't pick up until the second chapter from another. Oh well...her email was very nice, so at least that's something.

EQ-5/11/12
Nudge-7/9/12 (after 12 weeks, per sub guidelines)
10/16/12-Request for partial from Beth Campbell
11/16/12-Upgrade to full

Beth has been great! I found out that Lauren left shortly after I re-submitted my query and I pretty much gave it up for dead--no one else in the agency seemed a perfect fit. Then Beth wrote and asked me for a partial, which she responded to within a month asking for the full. She was super nice and very enthusiastic, here's to hoping she'll like the rest!

After emailing Beth Campbell about my partial to Lauren Ruth, today she asked to re-send the query and partial to her as they had a server error shortly after Lauren left and therefore didn't have what I had sent her.

EQ: 2/9
Partial request: 5/30
Nudge re: Offer of rep: 9/25
Request to resubmit my work: 9/25
Personalized rejection: 9/26

I know Lauren left, but since I heard they were going through her requests, I thought it best to let them know. Beth Campbell assured me they are indeed going through Lauren's emails, but said they had a server error shortly after she left, just an FYI for those who might still be wondering about the status of their submission. Beth had me resubmit and then quickly sent her reply. She was very complimentary of my work, but there are currently no agents who rep MG at Bookends.

Sincerely,

9/26/12--I've heard from Beth. Lauren left agency in July. Not a good fit for agency--none of the other agents rep thrillers.

So they are obviously working through her queries. I was pretty baffled until I came here and remembered why I'd marked her as a no response!
