Query sent on 6/11/18, FR on 6/15/18, sent same day. Nudge sent 10/4/18 and she replied on the 8th that she hadn't gotten to it yet, but she hoped to soon and would be in touch. It's almost been 11 months since I sent the full so I'm assuming no response :/ such a bummer.

YA contemporary fantasy - 79,000 - This one gave me whiplash. I actually had a rejection before I went to bed last night, just after 3 am, her time. Does this woman sleep?

Are we allowed to submit to another agent at the same agency or is that a "no from everyone" ?

Could have sworn a rejection was coming since so many others had heard back after I queried. Such a nice surprise!

I figured my rejection was coming when I saw she had requested from people who queried after me. I’m glad I got a response though.

scritrice, I sent just query + 10 and got a full request. When requesting, she also asked for a detailed synopsis, so I suppose it couldn't hurt to include it upfront.

Official page says "Submit query + 10 pages", her wishlist page on Manuscript Wishlist says "query + 10 + synopsis". Is the MSWL page up to date? Is everyone submitting a synopsis too?
