Had a similar Manuscript Academy situation as stated below. She said she was interested and she would send me her email so I could send the first fifty pages. She didn't send me her email.

FYI - She lists picture books on genres in QT but looking for MG, YA, and adult. See MSWL: https://www.manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jennifer-wills/

@fr0sting, I'm totally cracking up over your comment. The querying process can be so ridiculous sometimes you can't help but see the humor in it. I'm totally living for your wit and sarcasm, I'm sure what you've written is just as on par. Keep querying friend and best of luck!

This may be premature for a CNR; however, considering how many comments here mention communication issues and the spotty track record that is her timeline, I think it's inevitable. Also, I'm just in the mood to write another rejection letter that never came.

Dear form filler,

Thank you for taking the time to fill out my QueryManager form and for answering not only the pertinent fields regarding your work but also the included "fun" questions. This allows me to reject your writing and you as a person. Isn't it fun? While this project is obviously not the right fit for me, feel free to query me with other works in the future. (I should have some new "fun" questions by then!) Keep writing and querying, but most of all, keep having fun.

CNR: 3/5/21 (query withdrawn)

In a Manuscript Academy consultation with this agent, she requested an official query from me and 50 pages. Sent 11/30. Nudged 2/8/21

I decided to withdraw my submission, due to lack of response.
