@Christi12 @noranne @madeleinec

Adding my timeline. Leon has had my full since March 22nd. I'm waiting until September until first nudge. He has taken on a LOT of full manuscripts in the last 6-8 months. Hang in there everyone, it would be cool if at least one of us gets a rep!

My full MS has been under consideration since June 2016 (nudge in March 2017 confirmed it was still in his queue). So buckle in for the wait! =)

@madeleinec You will be waiting quite a while with Leon. He has had mine for almost a year! I just checked in with him (I've been giving him 6 months at a time). Maybe give him a little more than three months. :)

Anyone from the March/April full requests sending follow-ups yet? I know we're not supposed to until after three months, but I'm curious where he is with all of those MSs!

8/7/17: UPDATE: @LA_Knight - Well, Leon got back to me today and said he my MS is still under consideration! He just said it takes him a super long time because he reads all of his own requested materials. I'll just keep my fingers crossed that he reads it soon and likes it. :) This is the only full I have out at this point for this project, butI do have two other queries out for it. I'll be sending out new queries for a new project, hopefully, by September/October. He said to keep me onhis list formy next project, too.

@LA_Knight I just went to a writing conference and something someone said there also made me think I should just check-in one last time. Maybe my sub got pushed down or something weird happened to it? I will send a polite nudge. Thanks for the push!

8/5/17 Okay, just sent a check-in. I realized that I had sent him TWO updated versions (the last was actually in August of 2016!)... Probably not the best idea, but I had overhauled the MS that second time and now I'm just hoping that it got lost in his emails somehow. I mentioned a new project so we will see what happens...

@Christi12 - I would nudge him at this point? It's been a LOOONG time so maybe try poking him on Twitter? He's pretty chill.

"Thank you for thinking of me for your work; unfortunately, it's just not quite right for me. As I'm sure you know, whether or not to take on a client is a very personal decision, and has as much to do with an agent's personal preferences as it does an author's writing abilities.

I wish you lots of success in your writing career."

jenniwood731, thanks so much! I know some agents have personal e-mails for clients only, so I didn't want to overstep

JessyMontgomery, use his specific email. I don't think he gets the ones sent to the agency one
