r & r request from full sent in April...but I already have an agent...letter arrived today. But the letter was two pages and VERY detailed. She said that she would love to see a second draft.
05/11/2013 11:57 AM
She was highly recommended - sent in a full early May. My first real attempt to acquire an agent - I hear it requires patience.
04/23/2013 11:21 AM
She had it from late-February. Call was interesting but have heard nothing since. She had not read much when we talked so I'm assuming she is reading now.
04/08/2013 12:46 PM
Congrats professor. That is great! How long has she had your full?
04/08/2013 11:09 AM
She has a full and we are schedule to talk on the phone Wednesday.
04/08/2013 09:34 AM
I know...well good luck!!!! She is one of the best!
04/08/2013 09:23 AM
It took her almost 3 months to respond on the partial, so a full *may* take her longer. I would say give her at least 3 months though, which is pretty standard for agents.

It's going to take me a while for the R&R, unfortunately. I've been so burnt out w/ that MS that I'm now working on doing a major overhaul of my 1st MS. So, that one has my attention right now. But when I do get to revising the one I sent her, I will surely update.
04/08/2013 09:09 AM
Yay!!!! Ia m about to ship this package off to her today. Did it take her a while to get back to you on your full?

And keep us posted here. I would love to know what she thinks about you R & R.
04/08/2013 09:01 AM
That's fantastic, Marissa! Congrats!

She was very kind in replying w/ a 2-page response, giving me specifics of how my MS can be improved. I can't believe she actually took the time to do that. So, that says a lot about her as an agent and her hope in my MS. She said that once I make the revisions, she would be happy to review my 2nd draft.

Congrats Renzie Renee! She requested my full on yesterday. So did she offer you rep, or a R&R then an offer of rep?
