EQ via online form: 7/23/21
PR (first fifty pages, sent same day): 8/25/21
ER: 9/21/21 (personally likes the story/characters, genre is in demand, but too short [publishers want 80k-90k]--will reconsider if I add ~15k)

Update: Submitted revised full (~82k words) on 1/10/22
Nudged on 4/20/22
Received response on 4/29/22 indicating that manuscript was still under consideration and to expect a response by the end of June--if no response, encouraged to nudge again

Similar to cwbuecheler, since Ms. Tibbets had expressed interest in reading the revision, I contacted her on Twitter and asked if she would be interested in reviewing the manuscript despite being currently closed to queries. She allowed it and gave a tentative timetable of at least three months.

Adult horror at 68k words.

Dark Fantasy, 96k

Anne's currently closed to queries but she's requested two previous fulls and we've communicated quite a bit since then, so I asked if she'd be interested in taking a look and she said yes.

Thank you for the query. Unfortunately, I am not seeking IP work-for-hire manuscripts at this time and I'm going to pass. Of course, other agents may feel differently. I wish you the best of luck in your search for representation.
Best Regards,
