Note: Really great experiences querying Ms. Ahearn. Assuming you're writing something she's after, she should always be on your query list!

Annette, you need to wait a bit long since she's real slow. Give her 8 more weeks before you close her out. She does respond belatedly. This is from her website: Response time is two to three months on queries and submissions.

EQ 5/30/18 (2nd/final REQUERY Venom)
1/2/19-sent her revised and tweaked 50 pages)
ER 3/28/19 (Passed--she said it didn't have distinctive voice and the fast pacing she wants in a thriller)

On 4/22/16, I've requeried Pamela with Venom.. On 8/20/16, I've heard back from her with a pass-not right for her.

Update: 5/25/16 EQ (requery Chain Reaction)
10/11/16: 50 page partial with synopsis
Update: 11/2/16: PR sent with synopsis

Update: 1/20/17 ER (Passed, wasn't keen enough to handle ms, not strong enough for an writer and felt story was too small.) I'll try her with DI later this spring.

PR 8/4/17 (Diplomatic Immunity (50 pages)
ER 5/3/18 (Passed on partial after she waited for me to finish revisions--writing's not strong enough to attract an editor)
