I'm closing mine out too and moving on. CNR: 4/26 although, I have to say it seems she takes upwards of 30 days to respond. Hang in there. I have another project I'm eager to query.

Queried in early December and got an enthusiastic response mid-Dec. that she was enjoying my ms and would get back to me "ASAP." Nudged at 3 months. No response. Closing out.

Sent email in December, before I knew about the form and sending a full on their site. She emailed me back and said to send the full, the following week. Nudged her two weeks ago, and got nothing. Closing out.

Since I've already queried her, I was looking for an actual email.

There's a form on the website, mgmystery. The button's so large it looks like part of the decor. :) Unless you wanted an actual email for her. Good luck!

Where can I find the email address for Lorin? She says on Twitter she responds to every query, and I'd like to ask if she's interested in seeing a revised version.

EQ (form) : 4/5 MG speculative.

EQ (online form): 1/12
Nudge with offer: 1/13
ER: 1/18 -- Since I'm working with another offer, Lorin said she would have considered this a "revise and resubmit," but there isn't time. Her beautiful email was honest and helpful.
2/1: I didn't accept the offer (it was super sketchy), and I asked Lorin to possibly reconsider her "revise and resubmit" idea. She said she'd circle back to my book and we can possibly set up a time to chat in a week or so. I am so excited! I've marked this as a "partial" request -- not sure how else to record it.
2/19: Lorin emailed me to indicate she's reading my manuscript this week and will get in touch by the weekend.
*Update: Lorin never responded. I am closing this out.

Lorin posted on Twitter that she's signed her first 3 clients, which is pretty exciting

Lengthy form e-ject on December 12 submission of a picture book. One of her main reasons for refusal is that it's a genre outside of her interests - in this case, she says she doesn't rep picture books, although PBs are included on her list here.

EQ: 2/18/17
ER: 2/23/17 - Impersonal form rejection. It was certainly informational, listing all the common reasons she passes, but not specific to my manuscript at all.

EQ 12/15/16 (80K--YA speculative/time travel)
CNR 2/1/17
Updated ER 2/23/17
Three weeks after I closed this out as a CNR, I received a pleasant form letter from Ms. Oberweger with a pass and general suggestions of typical problems in the submissions she sees, as well as a list of resources for improving my craft. I appreciate her taking the time to send a response.

Also, for those of you who heard from Lorin about her interest in your manuscript, I did some Twitter stalking the other day. =) Check out her "Tweets & Replies" from 12/30/16-12/31/16 with @callathekitten wherein she discusses her interest in some pending manuscripts. Might be helpful, or at least positive.
