@Berkvase It actually makes me feel better that I am not the only one in this extended holding pattern! Since we both received a second confirmation of continued interest, it is promising that she sees something that she feels a connection with/likes/appreciates etc. She’s such an advocate for writers and among the best, so sometimes I find myself pinching myself at how lucky I am she has maintained interest all this time. Good luck to you! I hope we both eventually receive an offer of rep!

It's been 10 weeks, and I sent a follow-up, but there's no reply. Closing for sanity.

I was wondering which agent you ended up with, @tris3317. Congrats!

Initial Query: 8/17
CNRed after three months and queried another agent at the agency, who requested the full. I notified her of an offer of rep on 2/22, and she then passed the manuscript along to Alexandra, who she thought may be a better fit.
Offer of Rep!: 3/7
Accepted her Offer!: 3/7

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
