Jennifer13, I'm waiting on a full with her as well! If anyone hears from her regarding her prior MS requests, could you post an update here? Thanks!

Just came here to post the same thing, akghutton! Does Patrick need an email about this or does he (or a moderator) monitor these posts for changes?

@Terri_Martin, me too. The last time she and I corresponded was January 19th, when she replied to my December check-in email. She thanked me for my patience and said she would be in touch soon. I assume she would've said something then if she wasn't planning to continue working as a literary agent.

Good luck, Terri, Alisha, and the rest of you with fulls out to her! Keep us posted.

aarggghhhh. She's had my full since April. Her Twitter feed still has her at WH, so the change must have been quite recent--she tweeted as recently as 1/31 (well, it was a re-tweet, but still).

@orangrila, thanks for pointing that out. She's had my full forever and was having others read it, too. Hopefully she'll pop up at another agency soon!

Soumeya isn't listed on Writers' House website at present. I wonder whether she's gone?.

WELL, more than a YEAR after I submitted my full to her, I got a response today. It's a no. I had given up on hearing from her.

In the time it's taken her to get back to me, I've written an entirely new manuscript, queried for it, have had several people read the full and get back to me, and have gotten an R & R.
