I received a partial request from Laura on April first this year (sent it to her the same day), and have not heard anything back yet, but I see that others who sent their partials in as late as June have been hearing back. Is anyone else still waiting on word back about a partial sent as far back as late March or early April? I'm trying to decide if I should nudge.

*Update: 12/14/18 Full request

I received a partial request back in November 2017 and never received confirmation she received the partial. In December I then let her know I was revising based on some notes and asked if she would like to wait for the newer version, but never heard back. I sent her my updated version May 2018 and didn't get confirmation from her on that either. I then nudged her in August to see if she even got my materials and received no reply. Then I got a form rejection November 2018, but I don't know which version of my partial she read. I guess I'll never know. Oh well!

@ErinPhillips I've been waiting on a partial since January, which was actually me sending a revision of the partial I sent the previous May.

Had a consultation with Laura through MS Academy. VERY helpful advice on the first ten pages (adult contemporary/urban fantasy), world-building, making my protagonist stand out, etc. She's professional, personable, and gives fantastic advice. Totally recommend!

@ErinPhillips: I’m waiting on a partial sent in early March. Laura recently got in touch and asked me to resend the submission because she couldn’t find it in our email thread. She’s slow, but she does seem to eventually get to every submission.
