2-11-19 : Email query
A couple hours later, she requested the full! I'm kinda in shock! It's also my birthday, so that was a great present! lol

YA Fantasy/Retelling

Well, It's been almost a year and no response to the full (or nudges) so I guess I'm closing this one out as no response... :/

On Twitter she announced that she's very behind on submissions and will close to queries on September 15

DLGioe, I queried her in October, then nudged in June and didn't hear anything either time. I'm assuming she's a no response means no agent at this point

EQ 05/17/19 - MG contemporary fantasy 62K

08/19/19 Was going to send a follow up on but her confirmation email states "please be aware that if you respond to your original query it will automatically be pushed to the back of my queue, which may result in longer wait times." Checked her Twitter and her blog and don't see much in the way of updates on queries but since we're just coming out of the summer slump, think I'll give it one more month until CNR'ing it. Anyone else in the same boat?

She hasn't responded to any of the queries reported here since May, so it's probably a safe bet to close mine at this point.
