Ms. Weiss responded within a week of my query. She offered some thoughtful and useful suggestions on my manuscript.

ER: 3/16/17 - This agent clearly doesn't do timely responses, so for peace of mind I'm just closing it out.

I sent her my query on 5/17 and CNR'd after a couple of months.

She just responded today (12/18) with a full request. She was apologetic for the wait, and states that her inbox has been out of control for the last few months.

1/16 sent full

2/26 kind, personalized rejection with actionable feedback

Best of luck to everyone else!

Took her 247 days to send a form rejection. Good grief.

Does anyone here know someone who is represented by this agent? I looked her up on publisher's marketplace and she doesn't seem to have any sales (and doesn't even have a page set up there). I realize she is new but she doesn't have much of a presence online, and isn't responding to any queries, which is kind of weird for someone who is actively building their client list.
