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 also submitted to her email address rather than the online form (on May 31) and have yet to hear anything back. Maybe the form must be sent as well?

I submitted to her email address as per the info on her page rather than using the Trident online submissions form. Has anyone heard back after submitting to her email address?

EQ 9/14/16 MG Fantasy 34K
Full request 9/15/16 (fingers crossed)
ER 3/27/17 Apologized for taking so long (over six months), but while she liked the idea, she didn't "fall in love" as much as she would need to.

Gentle nudge 12/14/16 (never sure what is appropriate, but thought 3 months might be good time to check)
Another gentle nudge 1/4/17. No response to the first, but perhaps now the holidays are over she'll respond. Otherwise, I may have to close it out is CNR. (Which I hate to do on a full request. Sigh.)
