@cbrooks31 Yes, nudged her on June 17, and sent her an additional MS in April. Still haven’t heard a thing. At least I’m not alone!

Was super pumped to get a request for more materials and information about what I other genres I write. That was last September, haven’t heard from her since :(.

EQ: 5/23/18 73,000 word commercial. I'd previously queries Ms. LaPolla but did a closed, no response after 51 days. Hopefully it's not a faux pas to query another agent there. The website says you can, but you "must wait for a response from the first agent first." However, since according to QT stats, since those agents only respond 50% of the time, it's really tough to gauge.

Thoughtful and kind rejection. Didn't connect with the manuscript as much as she'd hoped.

ER-11/3/17 (18 hours later)-I initially took this as a real negative, but I feel better now. I received the same boilerplate language that several others did below, but with a comment specific to my PB ms. Contemplating a revision and resubmit, even though she didn't specifically offer it. Interested in comparing notes, stop by my blog at and leave me a comment.

Thanks, stanleyyelnats. I queried Jan. 9. I guess I'll wait a little longer assuming she's going through queries in order received.

Has anyone who queried her before she closed in January received a response?
