EQ 5/11 #dvpit request YA fantasy with MG appeal
Nudge 6/22 per agency guidelines to do so after 6 weeks
ER 7/9/18

Jennifer was very kind and insightful in her reply. She explained that she took so long because she set my pages aside for more detailed reading, then went on to explain why she feels my book is more suited for MG than YA, and invited me to submit a partial (length unspecified; I sent a reply through the Query Manager site to ask) should I make the appropriate revisions.

I queried her via a referral so it was emailed (not on her form). 2/25/18
I just heard back. Full request. She had a surgery early in the year and has been struggling to keep up since. She apologized for the delay but she prioritizes her clients, which I understand. (And would appreciate if I was one, I'm sure.) 5/1/18

She requested an old ms of mine twice during #Pitmad fall 2017 and #dvpit 2017, but I never heard back from her. After much debating and crying, I shelved that story and wrote a new one. Then, after pitching my new story in #PitMad March, Jennifer sent me a very kind dm requesting that I query her + first 50 pages + synopsis. She's very behind on her requested materials, but I know she is working very hard to get them read!

EQ+materials sent: 10/3/18
Confirmation of receipt via Twitter: 10/3/18

Fingers and toes crossed for this one omg

I got a super nice step aside from Jennifer after an offer of rep - she said she was too swamped to read fully in time.

7/14/16: PR in online contest; sent 50 pp + synopsis the next day.
11/8/16: Full request! Sent next day.
3/24/17: Jennifer shared on Twitter she'd been sick and was behind and invited people to check in with her.
7/6/17: Nudge with slight revision.
7/26/17: Jennifer emailed to apologize for delay, accepted revision and said she'd make reading a priority.
8/28/17: She emailed to set up phone call.
8/30/17: Phone conversation and offer of rep!
9/10/17: Accepted her representation. Very happy to proceed with her.
YA Contemporary, 81K

Tip: Don't close Jennifer out quickly; she takes her time because she really cares to give everyone's work a chance.
Also: It can be risky to nudge agents with revisions and I don't normally advise it, but I have done it successfully when I had reason to believe the agent hadn't started reading yet or the changes were significant enough to mention but still minor enough not to warrant a reread if agent had started reading.

Good luck everyone!
