EQ for an #MSWL on 5/30/15 YA Fantasy, 68k
Update: I participated in her Reddit event. Because I'd previously queried her she didn't give me a rejection / request on the form, and said it come by e-mail. It hasn't yet. :) But her comments sounded positive, so I'm hopeful! I mean... I'm sort of biting my nails, actually. I've got a few partials and fulls out now, and Moe is literally everything I want in an Agent, so I'm hoping that if she does request, she does so soon.
6/18/15: FULL REQUEST :D :D :D
8/11/15: R&R on the full, sent 10/7
10/7/15: R&R resubmitted. no confirmation email (but I understand this is typical.)
3/16/2017: unrelated, but I won PitchMadness 2016
5/3/16: Withdrew -- after the JKR "accidentally makes the history of the wizarding world in North America racist as hell" debacle, I wanted to critically re-examine my MS.

6/13/2017: Re-queried with revised MS. She's still my #1 choice. I'm a little surprised to hear that she's behind enough that she might not have even read my original sub if I hadn't withdrawn, but I am at peace with the decisions I've made. (For reference, this project went from being a 68k YAF to a 102k adult SF... yeah. it's been a long couple of years, lol.)

6/24/17: met and pitched in person at Writing Day Workshop Chicago. Full Req + Synopsis.

As I've expected, Moe's an absolute delight and I feel so privileged just to have worked with her in the capacity I have. Yes, she IS very behind, but she is working through submissions now. If you haven't heard anything, I wouldn't take no answer as no quite yet.

9/22/18: Sent a nudge, seeing as it’s now been a year longer than what she told me in person. I’m considering doing some more revision work on the project so I hope she gets back with me before the end of the year, even if it’s just to say she hasn’t read it yet.

6/27/18: EQ (through online form)
9/6/16: PR
1/10/17: Nudge (she replied 1/19/17)
7/6/17: Nudge (she replied 7/25/18)
5/1/18: Nudge
8/31/18: ER

Despite the long wait time, Moe was very nice and responsive, and I would consider querying her again.

Is there a more effective yet still professional way to contact Moe Ferrara? I've had a full with her since April 2017 and in February 2018 I sent a couple nudges via Query Manager, but she never responded.

It was two years between query, full, and ultimate rejection, but it was a tough project (self-pubbed but successful enough for me to try anyway.) Her response seemed genuine and, if I can refrain from hitting the PUBLISH button on my next book, she'll be the first agent on my list.

Totally worth the wait :)

EQ: 8/24/17
FR: (and sent) 10/31/17

**May 2018- I checked in and she still hadn't gotten to my story. She apologized, explaining she's had a very tough year with "personal" stuff.
8/18/18 - Still waiting... It's been almost a year now, but her last response in May said she's still going to read it.

6/21/16 EQ
6/21/16 Partial Request
YA Dark Urban Fantasy

Due to a death in my family a couple of months after I sent my ms, I did not follow up with nudges. As of today, 7/19/18, I have never heard back. Obviously closed out.

Saw her forum saying she'd be back in business July 1, but now she's out until after labor day. I submitted July 14. Probably wasn't a good idea to submit then, until she had announced she had re-opened her slush pile.

@mreyeswrites - how did you check in? I've tried and tried and I've gotten no response... has had full since November 2017, so I guess I'm behind you... I'm sorry she's having a tough year and it's good to know she may still be an option for me, but i'd love to know how you got in touch with her.
