@AgentUndead0913 I know!! Was so excited to see her tweet earlier that she's hoping to be completely caught up by year's end.
I'm going to take the cross talk to PMs so we don't drive everyone else waiting to hear back crazy :P

@Annikab , I am right there with you! I'm obsessively checking her blog to see if she's updating her query stats. Writing the next book is the best advice. Are you doing nano??

@AgentUndead0913 I like to think I'm hanging in there, but based on the number of times I check querytracker in a day....
Just gotta write the next book and stop worrying about this one. :P

Thank you, Annikab! I appreciate it. Yeah, I've been watching her twitter feed. Fingers crossed we will hear something soon! You hanging in there?

@AgentUndead0913 looks like she's going through July (very slowly) though I did see one from much earlier in the summer as well. Based on her Twitter, sounds like she's reading fulls as well.

AgentUndead0913--oof, I KNOW. *haunted eyes* Just good to know we're not in it alone. :) If I see her timeline start to move and no one's commented about it yet, I'll post here so you know.

Thanks for the advice, Annikab. That's really helpful! I'll definitely wait. It's just so hard, you know?

I wouldn't. Not sure if you guys are subscribed so you can see her timeline, but she's way, way behind on everyone. If she has your full, you could check in, but if it's just a query I would definitely wait for her to get yours with the rest.

Just looked at a blog entry from May. She said she was still reading manuscripts from January.......But she did give helpful instructions on how to send a status update e-mail!

I did try to call out to her about my query on Twitter in September.
Got no response.
