Still patiently waiting, haven't nudged.

Their website is back. Probably a temporary glitch.

The link to the Deborah Harris Agency shows a blank page. They're still on Facebook but no website that I can find.

I have no idea how she sleeps. Probably very well in the few hours she actually does. *smile*

I dunno, Bethany, it looks like she's requested a lot of fulls just from looking at these comments, and between that and working on her own books and the deal for one of her authors she just announced the other day, I'm wondering if the woman ever sleeps...

Slushpilesadness, are you sure you aren't counting partials instead of fulls? She does request a lot of partials because not everyone follows her sub guidelines, which call for 50 pgs. She still does request a nice number of fulls, which I appreciate.

ktwills79, go to the "Help" menu at the top of the page, then go to "Help Videos" and watch the video "Working with Multiple Projects". It should help. If not, get ahold of me via private message.

How do you add a 2nd project to your query status? Do I just have to erase the former project and start over?

Hey all - just a heads-up - she requests a LOT of fulls. On QT she has over 40. Which means she probably has more than when including people who don't use QT. According to her data, she IS quick though. I wouldn't nudge.

@TypeWriter I follow her on twitter and had seen she was slightly behind on her queries and that she likes to read the 50 pages on her kindle. I sent her a gentle nudge via email, I'm sure you can do the same.

Gentle Nudge: 5/10/18 - I only nudged because others seem to have received some sort of confirmation receipt and I did not.

Paranormal Romance - 53K words - sent her the first 50 pages per her twitter request.

@Karenleespree and @TypeWriter are they true partial requests or were the 50 pages not included with the initial query? She prefers to have a query that includes the first 50 pages.

Does she respond to partial requests if no longer interested?

This is the fastest full request I've ever gotten. Said that she thought it sounded amazing and had dipped into the first chapter and wanted me to send the full manuscript. I'm near hyperventilation. YA Fantasy 103k #MSWL
