Closing this out (ought to have long ago) 2/12/17

Tweaked her via email again in early February. Nothing yet.

Met Ms. Flashman at a conference pitch session in June. She loved my pitch (!), asked to see full. (She was really nice and smart, and I liked her.) I tweaked ms. over the summer, and sent it to her in August. She replied within the hour that she was excited to read it. Heard nothing for a while. Sent an email 8 weeks later, asking if she'd had a chance to read it yet. No reply. Not sure what is going on behind the scenes, so I just got back to work and am writing and querying away.

wrote to her via submission email at Janklow to inquire on materials prev sent to her while at trident. She responded personally with a quick reject later that night. Better to have an answer than waiting any longer! Onward...

Anybody know what's going on with Melissa Flashman? I see she's no longer listed at Trident Media Group. She has my full manuscript, and is one of my top choices. I'm really hoping she is still there.

Very quick and enthusiastic request. I have two partials and three fulls out with agents, but Melissa Flashman would be my dream agent. Fingers crossed.

I used the email on the main page, rather than the form online. Anyone else have luck with that?
