2/26/17 - Couldn't find submission info on the website listed here. I hunted her down via twitter and found this:

Query request is query letter + first 10 pages.

Anyone know anything about Hillary Jacobson? She seems to work with Alexandra with some clients, but has her own client list too and just made a deal with Putnam. She didn't seem to have her own QT page yet so I thought I'd post here.

Lilly, I would submit again. Usually emails sent on vacation are deleted or not read. Resend:)

I was going through all of my backed up query emails and realized that I accidently submitted one while they were on vacation. Should I resend it or assume that since I haven't heard back it was a pass?

@karenleespree Send once they are open to queries again. Do NOT wait; that will only put you further back in the line.

@karenleespree I would wait until Mid-January and then resend. Give her a while to catch up on her email!
