    I'm with Lilly. Met her at the DFWCon. She's a super sweet, passionate-about-the-biz lady. I'd give up cupcakes the rest of my life for her as my agent. Good luck to everyone! She seems the type who definitely gets back to you one way or another.

    Seeing quite a few rejections on QueryTracker as of late, but my 4/13 query has yet to be answered. I'm guessing she's still not requesting material? I can wait, but I wish there was some way to know that my query got there safely.

    Of course, I wouldn't really mind if I had to resend - I've edited the first chapter since, so the first five pages I sent her are from the previous draft.

    She just tweeted this today: "I'm trying to reply to 800+ queries in my inbox."
    So I figure she has it and is just working her way through a very full inbox!

    I just wanted to say that I still haven't heard from Ms. Fox about my full, which I submitted on Jan.4 2009. Yes, I did query repeatedly (see upthread). I no longer expect to get an answer from her, and moved on to other things, but this does make me rather sad.

    Does Diana Fox acknowledge receipt of fulls? She requested one from me a couple of weeks ago but I got no acknowledgment so wondering whether to chase to check she received it or just leave be?

    I sent her a full last week and didn't receive a confirmation either. I assumed that was normal though.

    Still nothing regarding my 4/13 query. I decided to resubmit just in case.

    I'm still waiting on a reply to my query from 11/4/2009. Though I'm thinking I may just query her on my next book that's thisclose to ready instead.

    She acknowledged receipt of the full I sent on 4/25 and she acknowledged receipt of the revision I sent on 6/16. I'd resend if you didn't get acknowlegement after a week or so.

    I'm still waiting on an April 9th query to Diana... it seems she's still considering it. I sent it again at the beginning of June just to be sure, and I didn't hear anything from that, either.

    OMG, full request! She apologized for taking so long and wanted to know if other agents were considering it. There are 4... 5, if you consider my R&R. How exactly do I word that?

    Congrats Annarkie! Keep us updated on your progress!

    I just looked it up and realized I never got an answer to the query I sent her on 2/17. Is she usually a no response means no or has my query gotten lost in the spammonster?

    Congratulations, Annarkie! Perhaps she's going through her 'maybe' pile. That'd certainly be nice.

    Friday is the one-year anniversary of sending her my revised novel. I'll be status querying her then. She has answered all of my SQs but the last one.

    Thanks, guys. I had sent my original query on 2-17, then resent on 5-25 if that helps anyone.
    I am so freakin' nervous!

    I sent Miss Fox my query May 1st, but I still haven't heard anything. I guess I'll wait a full three months before I try and send it again. I'm hoping I'm in a "maybe" pile somewhere.

    I sent a query May 19th. I'm wondering though...looks like people have gotten responses since then. Is this just another silent no?

    FYI: I sent her a query on June 4/10 and got rejected on June 27/10. So it does seem she is the type to give a response.
    Nothing ever beats a "try" but a failure. You will never know the outcome unless you first give it a try.

    I think that she responds to most, but is just swamped. I queried on 3/2/10 and just received a response (rejection) on 6/24/10. So, to anyone who queried in the last three months, you might just want to wait rather than duplicating your query and bogging her down more.

    Thanks Hillary.

    My previous rejection from Ms. Fox was a bit like yanking off a band-aid--painful, but at least it was over with fast. I was a little surprised this time around because everything I'd read gave me the impression she was always quick. But I do know she's swamped, I just wasn't sure what that meant.

    And with the lack of response I'm getting lately, my poor fingernails can only take so much. Good to have something cleared up.
