Hi guys. I think the reason she's taking a while is that now she's going through her submissions. At Writers House she had an assistant going through her submissions and since she's a big agent she's going through them herself so it might take a while

I too would like to know what’s going on with her. I don’t see her on the HG website. Queried her at Writer’s House no response then sent via online form to her at HG on 6/12 and she requested the full manuscript which I sent on 6/15 after she said she really liked the sample pages. I see she has tons of Twitter followers so I’m sure if she made a change there’d be some news. Maybe they just never updated the HG site? The press release said she was bringing many clients with her

@BySarahJane @KateKay @khontz333
Same situation with me too. I initially queried her back in January at WH but never got a response. Then I queried her at HG in June. Still no response. It was for a PB. In other words, you're not alone. I still have hope I will at least get a form rejection so I can have some closure.

@KateKay @khontz333
Same situation here. Queried to WH in January, considered it a CNR. Requeried to her new agency on 5/21, still haven't heard anything. She doesn't update her Twitter so idk if we're in a "maybe" pile or not. Fingers crossed, but more than likely a CNR.
