Cool! She's the best.
Oooooh, she's been on my query list since day 1.
"She discovered that a great deal of the suffering in this world is due not so much to original sin,
but to a kind of original stupidity, an unimaginative, stubborn stupidity." -- Georges Sand
Somehow You're Sitting Here (YA Contemporary F/F Romance) - #AmQuerying
We Only Wanted More (YA Contemporary M/F Romance) - #AmWriting
Mandy tweeted yesterday that she's responded to all queries and requested materials up until that moment. So if you queried/sent and haven't heard back, resend!
It annoys me how people like squirrels but not rats. At the end of the day they're the same thing, except that squirrels have had a better upbringing. - Karl Pilkington
Mandy read my MS in a day and loved it! She's so ridiculously nice and intelligent. I have the MS with other agents so I have to wait but I am beyond excited!
Queried Lindsay Mealing today. Too many of her faves match up to mine, to ignore.
The RagTime Traveler: Coming from Poisoned Pen Press, June 2017!
The Stairs, The Guides, and the Bay Area Splat Squad: On hiatus (Query thread for minor historical value)
Lord Peter's Eyes: Querying!
Mo'less Jones: On hold
No Title Yet: Writing, writing, writing

They're definitely fast at ECLA. I appreciate the quick agents, because it lets you move on if it's not a fit. (And good luck to you - Lindsay's great, but I'm biased!)
Just queried Lindsay after a "like" during PitMad. She responded in about 12 hours and requested the full manuscript. So happy to hear such great reviews about them! Keeping the fingers crossed!
- THE PIECES IN-BETWEEN: A NOVEL OF ANNE BOLEYN - 184k wc, seeking rep.
- TITAN SHIFT (SF) - 75k wc, seeking rep
- ASHES ON THE WIND: THE TALE OF BOUDICA - in progress
- THE BLACK GUM LAUGHS (Southern Horror) - 54k wc, seeking rep.
- BEYOND THE VEIL (SF, T) - 85k wc, seeking rep.
A fast, personalized, sympathetic, and understandable rejection from Lindsay. I wish all my queries were resolved that easily. I'd query ECLA again if I have something not so shapeshifter-y.
Sorry about the R, Filigree, but I'm glad it was useful.
Lindsay and Mandy are both super active on Twitter, too. They're pretty open about things related to the process. (I got to see my own MS as Mandy read it, which was really exciting, although I had to talk myself out of hoping it was mine!)
Got a full request from Mandy, mere days after I sent the query. So quick! Crossing my fingers.
