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.

It seems like she's reading all queries for the agency, so I guess she's behind. I sent mine Jan 6, so I'm not terribly hopeful at this point.

According to Data Explorer, she hasn't responded to anyone since late February.

Lorin is participating in Operation Awesome's Pass Or Pages contest this month. It's a great way to get feedback on your query letter and first page. If you are thinking about querying her, the feedback reveals at the end of the month are a great way to pick up tips and find ways to personalize your query letter. Details here:

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.

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 (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.
