Laura announced on Twitter today that she's closing to queries for a few months on August 1st because she has over 600 subs to get through. So, she'll probably get to us eventually!

I asked how to nudge if we submitted pre qm - will update with answer.

Oh, for sure. I'm sure she's busy. What I worry about is that mine got loss since it was sent back in august of 19 to her old agency. She said she brought them over, but it was pre-query tracker. I'm sure it's fine. I remember when I first queried her seeing fulls getting a response a year later, I'm just an anxious person. lol

No one get discouraged yet! Laura has been extremely busy, if you check her Twitter activity the last few weeks. I can't imagine she's had time to review incoming queries considering how active she has been in her local and publishing communities. Sending patience and kindness to everyone waiting on a response.

Anyone know of authors this agency represents or books published? I usually like to browse through these to get a sense of publishing houses they submit to, etc., but I'm having a hard time finding any info. Thanks!

@ Ociopia - Yes, unfortunately. ): I mean, it was addressed to me directly, but otherwise it was very form-y. Just: I liked the concept, but the MS wasn't for me.

sboyd - also one more question, did you transfer over or just stay with the original e-mail? I don't even know how to nudge at this point lol

Closing in on 1 year since she requested my full with no word. Assuming it’s a pass at this point.

Crawlingchaos - are you saying she sent you a full manuscript request and then rejected it on a form with no feedback? Wow.

Form on a full is definitely a mood. :/

Still think Laura is amazing. But yeah, a mood.
