Form query: 16th April 2022
Form rejection: 19th April 2022
**Note the above based on query only**
#LovePit request: 17th May 2022
Full MS submitted: 18th May 2022

**Update: Form rejection after 280 days of full submission! Repping work that must have that 'feel'.*

**I had since revised my MS, while I could be in her 'Maybe piles'. But the agent's QT message only accept notification on 'Withdrawal' or 'Offer of Rep'. Seemingly, this agent has a lot of fulls to consider.**

@Avramides I was literally refreshing my browser every 30 seconds until her manager opened. I think a lot of people have been waiting for her to open.

Still out from a Full Req in May 2022, hoping to hear back this month—fingers crossed!

Edit: Kind R recieved on 1/23/23 after a nudge on 1/11, said she was only taking books with the had-to-have feeling

It's amazing- I literally just hit submit on my query and I see 11 queries after mine, and one has a full request already? How is that even possible??!!

Anyone still out from a FR in March?

Venturing into the danger zone of 59 days and I'm not sure if I'm in a maybe pile or skipped *insert crying emoji here*

Update 11/2: Rejection. So sad.

Looks like she's processing fulls this week. Give it a week, but if someone is working on closing soon, I'd fire it off before closure.
10/20/2022 07:53 PM
Not sure if I'm in a maybe pile, but I queried back on 8/31/2022 and it's been 50 days/over 7 weeks. I would really like to query another agent in this agency before they close for the holidays, but I don't want to risk my chances on that being a big no no since I still haven't heard back from this agent :/ Any advice?

@nutmeg618 I also resubmitted over the summer. Per Instagram, she's closing to queries until February to catch up. She must be pretty behind! Hopefully that means we'll hear back soon. Good luck to you!

@StephAlex - Like you, I queried in March (5/11). I got a Full Request in 1 day, and still haven't gotten a decision. I revised my MS over the summer and asked her if she'd like the updated MS. It took her a while to respond, but she finally did reply with the following:

I apologize for the delay. I've been busy with client work which has put me a bit behind on reading submissions, but I am working to catch up. Please submit your revised manuscript and I will get back to you more quickly this time.

Since then, I've sent one nudge with no response, but I do see on the Timeline that she seems to be making her way through her fulls. Hopefully we hear something soon!

@Anna Raven, I queried this agent originally in late March, got a FR within a couple days, and I still haven't heard back. What is your time frame, if you don't mind me asking?

FQ: 09/12/22
FR: 09/15/22: Said it wasn't a good fit for her list right now, but her bio didn't focus heavily on romance, so that doesn't surprise me
