Have folks who had full requests gotten confirmations from Ms. Landis when they sent the manuscript? I've had a full out since mid August and have noticed others who sent fulls after me already getting responses while I have not. She might just be working out of order of course...

Rachel, I got a confirmation several days later.

Does anyone know if Sarah Landis sends confirmation of query receipt? I queried her 9/6 and didn't receive anything.

Sarah is great and actively building her list! If you are querying her with YA, know she has more than a decade of experience as a YA editor and is therefore a very editorial agent: a huge plus in my book. She's also kind and enthusiastic.

I feel good about the interaction overall. She seems swell. :) Oh well, moving on...

Queried for a YA spec fiction/fantasy on August 6. Just got a nice request for a full. At least we know she's not on vacation!

The Data Explorer suggests she is a “no-response means no” agent, but the confirmation I received a couple of days after my query says, "Thank you so much for your query! I will be back in touch with you shortly.” I’m wondering how long I should wait before trying their other new children’s agent. They both sound like they’ve got lots of experience and would be really great to work with. Thanks!
