On 4/11/16, I've requeried Nina Ryan with Venom. After a 2 week nudge with no response, it's CNR. I'll retry her with Chain Reaction this summer.

10/15/16: EQ 6/27/16 (Requery Chain Reaction)
CNR 10/14/16 (No word from nudge.)
Will try her with my new manuscript, Diplomatic Immunity, next fall.

G-d forbid Nina should have the courtesy to respond. No such luck...

On 10/28/2010, I've sent Nina Ryan my equery and waited for the three months. Two weeks ago, I've did a follow up. Today, it's now closed/no response.

On 4/15, I've queried her for Chain Reaction and waited three months. No response as of 8/14.

9/5--requerying her for Chain Reaction.1/5/12--nudged two weeks ago, still no response.
