From her Twitter: UPDATE: I'm caught up on queries sent before March 11. If you haven't heard from me, it's a pass on that project. I'm still reading fulls and partials received in February and March. If I have your partial/full, I'll email you once I've considered the project.

Lynnette is so enthusiastic and kind. After #PitMad March, she faved my tweet, then sent me an excited dm asking me to send her the full ms right away, without having to query.

Full MS sent: 9/3/18
A very kind and enthusiastic confirmation of receipt: 9/3/18

Highly recommend!

Update on Lynnette's Twitter as of March 5th: "I'm caught up on queries sent before March 1. No response on a query = a pass on that project.

I'm currently going through partials and fulls sent in February/March. If you sent me a partial or full before February and you haven't heard back, let me know."

If you queried her on January 29, read this message from her Twitter:

"If you're #amquerying, check your spam folder. I received a query for a YA sci-fi January 29, and I requested the full that day. I haven't heard from the author, despite nudging her. #StillHoping #CrossingFingers"


Good luck!

She's been updating her progress on Twitter. She's finished reading submissions to February 19th, so if you queried before then, it's a pass if you haven't heard from her.

No response. The worst kind of rejection.
