She emailed last night to let me know she's starting to read my MS.
Awesome points! It's so refreshing to have an agent acknowledge you while querying. I feel all warm and fuzzy now. :)

Short note about liking my characters but it wasn't right for her list at this time.

Okay, after this positive experience, i queried her almost immediately with a second YA manuscript that I had written. I did not get a confirmation of receipt or hear from her, so after several months, I resent it. I received an auto-confirmation stating that if you did not hear from them in 8 weeks, that it was not right for their agency and to wait 6 months before submitting another manuscript. This information is not on their website. Plus, they have changed their initial requirements from when I first submitted. Initially it was only a query letter. If you look at her timeline, you will see she requested lots of partials at first. The next time I submitted, it said to include the first 14 pages with your query, which I did. I never received the auto confirmation of receipt for the second query. When I saw on Twitter that she was through March 11 on queries, i resent the second manuscript query. I received a note from Jennie this AM referring me to what it stated in the auto confirmation. I wrote back explaining my reasoning and said I would resubmit at a later date. Bugs me that they are not clear initially, then tell you that you have not followed submission procedure.

A lovely, personalized rejection from Jennie today. Best of luck to anyone who has a submission out with her. She seems like a careful, kind, and conscientious agent.

It's good to know her query response times are longer now that clients are on sub.

Update as of 4/26:
Authors who have sent full manuscripts: I've just finished 2/12.
Authors who have sent partials: I have 2 to go.
Authors who have queried: I've got about 250 to review, so please bear with me! #lupinegrove

Thanks, irismori, I sent an email asking for a confirmation of her full request -- and she confirmed with an apology for taking longer than expected. I agree with the 3-4 month for Full subs, (been there sooo many times) I'm not too concerned. Nice to know she def has the MS though.

Full sent same day, with no response. Nudged on 3/27 to for confirmation of receipt and she DID receive - and was also clear that 1) her response time to queries is slower now that her clients are on submission and 2) to check Twitter for most recent updates. I appreciated her quick response to my email :)

@karenleespree I've had agents sit on my full for 4+ months - one month is still pretty short in the grand scheme of things.

When it takes this long for a full, it's usually not a good sign, IMO. Still waiting. Plus, she's signed two new clients within last two weeks. *sigh*

Her Twitter feed says she is up to Feb. 19 in her responses. She said if you queried her on or before that date and have not yet received a response she is still reviewing your query.

Confirmation, saying she'd get back to me ASAP.
2/9: Email to set up a phone call.
2/14: Offer of rep!!!

Yesterday I officially signed with Jennie and couldn't be happier! LGC seems like a great agency. I spoke with Danielle Smith as well, and they were both so lovely. Can't wait to move forward in my career with Jennie as my advocate. Good luck to all querying!
