I got a nice step aside from Sara after I sent an offer of rep notification. After reading she said it was too close to another client's work. (It was YA paranormal)

Pass. After 7 month wait.

BlaDeBla--no, I didn't receive any confirmation email, and I didn't make any changes to the subject line. I just replied to the same email thread. Be prepared for a long wait after sending your full. It took me ten months to hear back.

To those who received a Full Request from Miss Crowe: Did anyone get an email confirming that she received it? If not, did any of you change something in the subject line when sending the full? And did Miss Crowe's full request email come from the same email you queried at?

Just hoping mine hasn't been lost in cyberspace.

@Calistah, I do have one other full out. I'm hopeful because when that agent emailed her request, she included detailed notes about what she liked in my story. Fingers crossed! It's so true that querying is highly subjective, and I have a particularly quirky story. So I just need to keep querying till I find the right agent who really gets it.

@chicklegirl the only difference in my letter was after the sentence about much to be admired, she said that the voice in my manuscript was fantastic. The rest is the same, word for word. I'm so sorry. I hope you have others out that you're still hopeful for!

Oh, Calistah, I'm feeling your pain!

Mine seemed like a form email, though it could have just been what I've come to recognize as her pithy way of writing: "Thank you so much for letting me read your novel. There was much that I admired and enjoyed here. However, I am not enthusiastic enough to be a perfect fit. I know another agent will feel differently. All my best, Sara"

What about you? Anything of use?

So, I nudged in April, and again after I met her at a conference in May (to put a face to a name). Never heard anything back before today. I agree, @chicklegirl, 10 months for a form rejection hurts. Did she say anything about your writing or voice in the email?

A form rejection after more than 10 months made me feel like a little bit of me died inside. I'd have loved to work with her and would've valued some personalized feedback on why she passed. Ah, well--que sera, sera. Anyone with a full out, be prepared for a long wait.

Looks like I had unlucky timing; she requested a bunch of other fulls the same day I got my R.

BlaDeBla, I didn't receive a confirmation on the full I sent. It's been ten months, and even after nudging twice, I haven't heard anything yet.
