Just sent an email query after she gave us a link (Manuscript Academy panel). It's 96K word YA scifi. After reading the comments below... I guess I'll keep you updated.

Sent a full manuscript after her request from a Manuscript Academy session. I knew at the time it was likely to be a ghosting situation. Half a year later, no response. I'm not interested in nudging, but wanted to post for the information of other authors.

She requested my full 24 hours after I queried her. She ghosted me. Six months in, I nudged with a revised manuscript. Still nothing, and it's been over a year and a half. I've long since given up, I just wanted to make sure as many people as possible know that she's a ghoster. I see from other comments she's done the same to others. Don't get too excited over a full request from this agent.

Booked two Manuscript Academy 15-minute sessions with her in 2020, she was absolutely lovely and enthusiastic and requested me to send my full in November 2020 over the Thanksgiving holidays.

FR: 11/28/20

Rehauled manuscript with mentor, asked her if she'd like to see the revised full, and in 1 hour, she responded "Yes please."

Revised FR: 6/1/21
Nudged with offer of rep: 9/13/21
Never responded

Form after over a year... I don't get why you'd send a *rejection* after that long.
