I sent my full manuscript as requested on 5/8 and did not receive a confirmation. Should I email to ask if they received it or just wait?

Haven't heard back, but on 4/10 I sent her a message, informing her that I have decided to do a significant revision and asked if she'd like me to send it when I'm finished.

Still no word.
Very nice rejection 5/9 will query again with different projects:)

EQ: 1/30 (I queried Jenny Bent--referral)
FR: 1/30
03/14 Jenny said she'd passed on the MS to Heather... not sure how to mark it. I put it as full request on referral, too. Heather said the premise was right up her alley.

**UPDATE: I had an offer of rep on 4/17, so I notified Heather. She said she was reading and enjoying. Then a couple of days later she emailed to say she still was reading and enjoying, and to let her know about any updates. I got more interest and I updated. Never heard back from Heather. A week later, I signed with one of the offering agents. :)
