    Used to be an assistant agent at Writers House, and that is a good training ground. AQ lists a couple of good sales.

    She sent me a very nice personal rejection letter right when I started querying. She seems like a real class act.

    She's had my book since April 28th. Inching up on two months. I'll let you guys know when I hear from her.

    Sera,

    Did she send you a note saying that she received it? She sent it when she got my full.

    Hmm... She did not. I'll try resending it and see what happens.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    I got no confirmation of receipt either.

    Great, another thing to be paranoid over. *ponder*

    I wouldn't worry though. She mentioned that she doesn't always send confirmation. I think it was a bit of an exception rather than the norm for her to send confirmation. I was contacting her from overseas, and she knew.

    Hmm, well, I resent it with a short explanation. Here's hoping she doesn't see that as annoying.

    Has anyone heard back from her on their manuscripts yet? I'm *almost* to the two month mark, but she did say in her request it could take 2-3 months to read, as she was running behind.

    I have not yet. And as of today she's had it for three months. Maybe I'll hear this week.

    I have not heard back yet on mine, but I will say that Diana Fox read my post in this thread several posts back where I worried that she had not received my manuscript, and she took it upon herself to e-mail me and assure me that she did have it.

    She didn't have to do that, it was totally out of the goodness of her heart. A classy lady all around, and anyone who gets her will have a real treat I think.

    Wow, Tas. Sounds like a class act. And for that and what she currently reps, she's now added to my trusty spreadsheet.

    Since my last post, I've communicated with Diana several times through e-mail. I'm liking her more and more. She's very straightforward and responds as quickly as she can with her schedule. She seems devoted to building a client list she loves well and it would be wonderful to work with her. She still has my MS, but told me I should hear a final decision before the end of the month. Of what she read so far, though, she liked.

    Here's hoping!
