Belated R from almost a year ago: EQ 8/27/16 (Requery Venom)
ER 6/5/17 (Passed-didn't connect, not right agent). I had closed her out last fall.

ER 6/12/18 (Passed from nudge--energetic read, not good fit for her.)

@terri the worst that can happen is you get an official no. Best case? She wants to see the revision. I see no downside.

Two years and counting on a full, and I did receive an email that she had received the full. After 6 months I assumed it was a pass. She changed agencies early in 2017 so there is a chance the ms got lost in the transition, but I didn't nudge because it began to appear from comments here that this was becoming typical of her, and then life happened and I put that ms aside.

I've since sent the ms out for some serious beta reading and this summer I will be able to start revising in light of reviewers' comments. Do you folks think there's any point in nudging her with the revised ms?

anotherearth, The following message appears on her bio page and on the agency's submissions page:
"NOTE: Soumeya will not be accepting new unsolicited queries until May 1, 2018. All queries received during that time will be deleted. "

I think she is still open to queries if you sent one to WH before she moved to HSG (Hannigan Salky Getzler)...?

From Publishers Marketplace:

Queries received at Writers House are now CLOSED. If you did not receive a full manuscript request, please feel free to re-query me at HSG.

On the HSG site it says:

NOTE: Soumeya will not be accepting new unsolicited queries until May 1, 2018. All queries received during that time will be deleted.

So does this mean you can re-query her now if you queried recently at WH and did not get a request? Or maybe you can re-query her at HSG after May 1. A bit confusing.

*Thanks so much, jpatricklinder, for the congrats! Best of luck to you! I always found the Querytracker comments helpful while querying so wanted to make sure I updated.
