Thanks kmaria7! I'm wondering who's the last person here with requested materials to have heard back from her?

Hey y'all, heads up from her podcast Print Run (good podcast!) that she doesn't like nudges (which I'm sure doesn't count nudges for things like offer of rep etc, just regular nudges). She mentioned she has a system in her e-mail, and when you nudge, you bump yourself back to the end of the line based on email times.

If any of you are on Twitter, Laura is currently doing #500queries where she *bluntly* comments why she's rejecting each query and/or why she's requesting (without naming names) and she does so in real time. Very interesting to read through the thread! Maybe you'll be able to figure out which is yours if you've recently received a response from her.

Thank you nclar4. I sent mine in from a contest as well.

Hi allisjayce, I received confirmation, but she had requested through a contest, so I don't know if that is different. But I also sent in November and haven't heard back since that initial confirmation email. I think she is just behind.

Did anyone get a confirmation from Laura when they submitted materials? I submitted early November, and emailed her in Dec to see if she received them, and haven't hear a peep.

From looking at the Query Timeline, she has mostly responded to submissions (by rejecting them, or by asking for an upgrade to full) that were originally queried in September and prior. She issued those decisions in January.

Her responses since then have been sporadic and infrequent. Probably those have been the subs where another agent offered representation.

She has my partial, submitted October, and did not respond to the nudge I sent last month. I imagine she'll get to the ms eventually (or if/when I get another offer) but I'm not obsessively checking my inbox to see if she's written back.
