Update: I decided not to nudge since her socials stated she was responding to queries and fulls before opening back up.

Initial Full Request was sent 10/21/2023
Response to Full: 2/21/2023

Status: Rejected.

"Dear X,

Thank you for sending me the manuscript for [Redacted]. While I was really excited to dive in, I found that your writing didn't draw me in as much as I needed to offer representation. I wish I had more feedback for you, however you deserve an agent who is head-over-heels with your work as your champion. And I'm sorry to say that just isn't me. But keep querying, you've got something wonderful here. It just has to find its reader.

All my best,"

This was a little disheartening, especially since my full was kept for so long--but that's okay! Sometimes a project isn't always a right fit, and I hope others who have fulls out find success with Sheyla as she seems like an amazing agent <3 !!

Adult romance fantasy (faerie tale retelling) 110k, which I've since shaved down to ~106k
Still no rejection, so I hope that means I'm in the "maybe" pile.

I was really hoping since she kept it for so long this was going to be a full request. Oh well.

Sheyla just tweeted that she’s remaining closed to answer pending fulls/queries and work with her current clients, so hopefully you who are waiting will hear back soon!
