On 4/13/16, I've requeried Anne Devlin with Venom and nudged her today. She passed with a not for me rejection. I'll try her this summer with Chain Reaction.

Queried Dirk. Quickest rejection ever. Just over an hour. I don't know if that speed corresponds to my level of suckage or what. But talk about a prompt reply.

Today I've queried Dirk Devlin via email and heard back from him--just a decline. (I'll suggest an agent for him later this week.)

EQ 1/7/12 about 9pm
request for partial 1/8/12 @ 9:06pm (first 50 pages & long form bio sent snail mail)

This is my first request! Yay! Fingers crossed!

Family Saga/Fantasy Romance

Update: Received a rejection letter today. It was a nice one, on their letterhead, but it was still a rejection. Boo! =o( It said:

Thank you for sending me samples of your book. Because there are limits to the number and types of materials this agency can handle, your project is respectfully declined.

This is in no way a reflection on the quality or saleability of your material or its possible interest to other literary agents or publishers.

I'm trying to keep a positive attitude, not sure how much longer it will last though since I'm not having much luck with this process. Sigh!

Hugs to you Jordan. I've sent a new query over to her yesterday for my 2nd ms.

Note: On 5/17, I've sent her my query. Today I heard back from her on 5/23. She wrote "she can't take this on" on my query. Rejection #7.
