@Oleander_E I used the message button on query manager where the full was uploaded for all of my communication. I don’t have an email address.

@MStewart411, did you use the message function on query manager or an actual email address?

@bawhelan so sorry it wasn’t better news.

It’s been one year since my full request. My first two nudges at 3 & 6 months were responded to, saying ‘so sorry and it should be soon but she had been very busy’ (Understandable). I was a bit bummed to see she had reopened for submissions (at my 11 month mark) before addressing outstanding fulls but thought I would just see if I could query a second manuscript while also acting as a nudge for my first. Never heard back. Best of luck and happy writing to the rest of you!

Has anyone heard anything?

@bawhelen did you ever hear back on the second novel? I haven’t yet, coming up on a year for the first. I hope that’s a good sign and not bad. Good luck!

Great Job @bawhelan! You and I are in the same boat. I just emailed her asking if I could query another novel as well. Best of luck!

Obviously I don’t need to convince anyone to go ahead and query Deidre when she’s open. I think I waited just over a year for her to open to submissions after I finished this book. As you can tell from the dates above she has been really quick to respond, from my query to my check-ins. Each response has been kind, apologetic and professional. Needless to say she would be a dream agent as she puts her clients first (check out her Twitter to see everything coming out). Best of luck to everyone in the trenches!

fantasy (romantic, cozy, queer)

Seems she takes up to a year (or more) to respond to fulls, so time to get comfy :)

2/12/2024 Messaged her via QM to let her know I now have a queer adult romantasy and asked if she'd like to see it.

@MStewart411, good luck to you, too!

2/21/2024 Deidre hasn't yet replied to my message.

3/6/2024 Still no reply. Perhaps she no longer responds to nudges?

4/5/2024 Sorry for the late update! No, she never replied.

4/9/2024 Form rejection.
