4/29: I met Ms. Campbell at the Books Alive 2017 conference and had a lovely conversation during our pitch session. She requested my full MS and synopsis! She was my choice agent, so I hope she enjoys the prose.
4/30: Sent my materials via email. Fingers crossed!
7/3: Sent a short and polite nudge
7/14: Response saying it will be about another month.
12/11: Nudged and received a response within 30 mins stating that she would read my full "in the next couple of weeks before the end of the year." I'm so glad this is still going. I was starting to worry a rejection had been lost, haha. I'm also planning to query my new project in January, so fingers crossed for that MS, too! (I'll use a different comment thread for that project).
1/8/2018: Rejection with personalized feedback.

@greysteele: I don't have a direct email for her, but you might try asking her on Twitter (since it's been so long) or if that feels too intrusive, you could try the agency's general email Bookends@bookendsliterary.com

Beth requested my full MS on 6/20/17, which I uploaded to QueryManager on 6/23/17. I sent a message via QM on 10/6, and emailed her old email addy (BCSubmissions@bookendsliterary.com) on 11/4. No response to either. I suspect QM isn't sending her notifications, at least not for my submission. Does anyone know an alternate way to contact Beth?
