A few days later, the email changed....and requirements changed (I think? Still confused about this).
Nudged 1/26/23 to make sure my query was not lost in the changeover. I got a reply from new assistant (Anqi) within 24 hrs that i was still under consideration but they skipped the part where I asked for a timeline. SIGH.
"Hi Sara,

I can confirm that your query made it safely through the email change, and that it is still under consideration! Thank you for checking in.

Best,
Anqi"
So current query age is 57 days.
I KNOW these guys are slow. But at least I have some validation I'd still in the mix, I guess?
I sent a standard query...query letter, 1st 10 pages of mss.

For anyone who received a positive response from Ms. Reamer: did you submit your full manuscript with your original query? It would be amazing to have any insight into what worked, since her guidelines are a bit vague. Thank you so much and good luck!!!!

looking at her guidelines now, she asks for manuscript and query both emailed to her at jreamersubmissions. As attachments, or no?

@eggwhisk, I sent my query to her assistant Rey (she's commented below and others have reported communicating with her as well).
I just sent my query and first ten pages. There was conflicting info so I just kept it standard. Seeing as Ms. Reamer does not seem all that hungry for new clients (and understandably so bc she reps superstars), I guess she isn't too into her slush pile.
That's why I called it shooting for the moon! I don't actually expect a request from her but hey, you miss 100% of the shots you don't take ;)

I would like to submit to her, but I'm a little confused about what to submit. On the writer's house website it mentions query and synopsis, but on her publisher's marketplace page it mentions manuscript. Is it the whole manuscript as an attachment or just the first x amount of pages? If anyone who has queried her can shed some light, it would be greatly appreciated!
