1/5/21 - FQ

98K - Contemporary Romance - Motorcycle Club Romance - 1st in Series

EQ: 7/7/20
Paused Query: 10/7/20 - sent message asking if I should withdraw and resubmit because I am consulting an editor and will be substantially reworking my project. Response - Thank you for letting me know! Why don't you withdraw this query and requery when you're ready. Good luck!

7/13/20 - Twitter update: A quick query update: I have responded to all QueryManager queries through July 9th.

I still have a few I'm holding over to read again.

I just checked QueryManager and mine is still listed as having no decision. Perhaps She's still holding onto mine. I'll keep it open a bit longer.

Vague rejection letter - personal - saying that she did not connect with my MC (named). How this helps me, I don't know. It would be nice to know why, so if there is a character flaw, I could fix it. This rejection stung as I was assured by others that she would be a great agent for me. Oh well, guess not.

10/16: Offer accepted! Jana's editorial approach is exactly what I'm looking for, and we clicked during the call. Can't wait to see what this partnership brings!
Adult Contemporary Romance, 75k

Jana requested a different ms of mine last year and ultimately passed with kind, uplifting feedback. She seems like a delight to work with, so fingers crossed that she falls in love with this story! :)

I've queried Ms. Hanson with two manuscripts. Both times she responded within 10 days with very kind and specific reasons for why she decided to pass.

Unfortunately, we were directly in the path of Hurricane Sally, so we are still without internet/wifi. We let her know the situation with our technological issues, and she was very understanding. Will update this when I'm able to send out fulls again.

8/13/20 Tweets - I am also going to be CLOSING to queries beginning August 14th evening for about five weeks or so.

School starts soon, and I feel like I need some extra time to get into the swing of things, especially with virtual learning, which we didn't have in March.

Query update: I have responded to all queries through August 12th.

I still have a few maybes I'm holding on to (the MAYBES, you guys -- always a difficult decision).

The genres listed here come from the options on her query form.

The Metamorphosis website says the following, which doesn't match the list of genres here.
She is seeking: romance (any pairing, any subgenre), YA, middle grade, historical fiction, cozy mysteries, women's fiction, suspense, and thrillers.
