@MochieB - It does seem like an unusually long wait, but it looks like she usually replies. So far, those after us haven't heard anything either, so hopefully she's just really busy! I hope you get some good news soon!

Billybuttercup - I don’t have her assistant’s email address, so I just replied to her. And then I sent a follow up using the same chain, but ...nothing! I wonder if we consider it a no or if she will eventually reply?
Seems like an unusually long wait, which makes me wonder if it’s just a no.

Good luck !!! I hope we both hear good news in the coming year

@MochieB - Not a peep. No reply to my nudge Dec 5 to her assistant - just sent a revised MS to both Alyssa and her assistant (Dec 29). Sounds like you're ahead of me in the queue...hopefully you get an answer soon!!

MochiB, she's had my full for 3 months as well, still waiting. These things can take several months as far as I know.

MochiB, 3 months isn't a long wait for requested materials. Some of the comments for Alyssa show 4 and 6 months waits in 2016. Hang in there, and keep subbing. She'll answer if you get an offer from another agency before she gets to you.

How long have you guys waited to hear back from her about requested materials? It's been almost three months for me so I'm kind of figuring it's a no...

I submitted to her by email only and heard back same day.
