Don't lose hope if she requested from you and it's been a while!!!
She is catching up on her inbox. Her rejection was one of the most hopeful and kindest rejections I have EVER received.

Wanted to say Saba is one of the sweetest agents I know. Back in 2017, being a newbie, I sent my first shoddy manuscript to the world. She was kind enough to provide 3 full paragraphs of helpful feedback and encouragement. And this was just on a query letter and the first 10 pages!

Don't lose hope if you've been waiting a while. She seems to be catching up on queries now.

Her response 3/19:


Thanks for following up! I'm a little behind on queries, but I believe we are finally sifting through material sent to us in January, so I hope you don't have to wait much longer. Thank you for your infinite patience in the meantime!

My best,

~Her clients are so lucky to have such a gracious agent.

m-pepper - She asked for a FR of my manuscript on 12/8 and I haven't heard anything either. She said to expect a while and when I asked for a timeframe she said 3-4 months. We're still well within that window. Fingers crossed for good news for both of us!

She warned me it might be a while before she could read it, and I'm scared to nudge. But based on the reports, my guess is the news won't be good if/when it comes.

Very gracious person. I wouldn't hesitate to submit to her again. She replied to my email withdrawing my query with the following:

Dear Jeanne,

Thank you for letting me know, and for making what sounds like a thoughtful, wise decision. There's nothing I love more than seeing writers improve their craft and submit only their best work to agents, and I hope to hear from you once again when you're ready to query. Until then, good luck with revising, and take care!

My best,

I accidentally forgot to include pages with my query and was ready to mark it off as a loss, but she replied to remind me to send the pages. Much more gracious than she needed to be. (She later requested, too.)

On 2/14 on her Twitter, she posted this:

"announcement: i'm closing to all unsolicited queries on 3/1. send me all your best work before then, or, well, ¯_(?)_/¯ note: this does not include pitch contest requests, conference requests, or queries from authors i've previously connected with. godspeed!"

Saba is AMAZING, folks. Query her now while she's still open to unsolicited queries!

Query for literary fiction rejected after 36 days,
but the rejection, from an assistant named Isabelle, was warm and thoughtful, and it included very specific feedback on where they felt the pacing was a problem in my 10-page writing sample. I wrote back, thanking Isabelle for her thoughtful letter and the feedback on my writing sample.
