Aarrggh, her request also went to my spam filter, just found it today. Oh well, now I'm crossing my fingers. Sorry for the R, Laclos. At least she is quick!

My spam filter had hidden her request from me. I just happened to check it this morning.

Fingers crossed!

Update: 7/10: Rejection.

Thank you for sharing your manuscript with us. [TITLE] is well crafted and has a compelling premise, but unfortunately, it is just not right for our list. We appreciate your interest in the agency and wish you all the best with your writing.

Congratulations, lawgirl79!

I submitted my query to Andrea -- it's a hybrid (cross between women's fiction and contemporary romance) and tends to be more serious... so I know it's a tougher sell in the marketplace.

Sent query on 6/19.
Requested partial on 7/2.
So we'll see!

Best of luck, everyone.

Rejected on 7/7 -- boy, Andrea got back to me quick. A nice, classy rejection, too.

"Thank you for sharing your work with us. (TITLE OF NOVEL) has compelling conflict and a strong, distinct tone. Unfortunately, the novel isn't quite right for our list at this time. We appreciate your interest in the agency, and we wish you all the best in your search for representation."

I think you're right, brittkl. It's just in her Writer's Digest call for submissions it read, "“I am looking for upmarket, book club women’s fiction, commercial women’s fiction/romance (contemporary or historical), young adult fiction..." So I gave it a shot. But when I track her submissions/requests here, I see she's never once requested a YA. Oh well.

Partial on 6/13 for Contemporary YA
Request for full on 6/26
Fingers crossed.

Offer of Rep - 7/1

Had an offer of rep from Genevieve Nine, who will partner with Andrea! She sounds lovely and was so nice about my ms. Also had a R&R from another agent yesterday so feeling shocked/overwhelmed/excited. I've told them I'll let them know within two weeks--I have to nudge other agents reading the ms know, etc.
