    Just thought I'd add my experience to this thread.

    Ms Paquette requested my full through a contest mid-December 2012 (MG historical), then responded the following day asking for a bio and saying she was very excited to read it. She was very friendly and enthusiastic.

    I didn't hear a peep after that, so I sent a gentle nudge three and a half months later, at the end of March. She replied five days later with a nice email saying she's been very busy lately and was still looking forward to reading it.

    Will update if/when I hear anything else.

    Yes, you have to be extremely patient with Joan (unless you can nudge with another offer - she seems to respond quite promptly then). I originally queried her a YEAR ago. I hope to be able to report more definitive news soon, but I can at least say that hope is still alive with her. And from my interactions with her, she's worth the wait!

    Heard back from Ms Paquette today, with a brief, but very nice pass and an offer to look at future work. So around four months to hear on a full. Will definitely query her with my new ms, she seems lovely.

    And fingers crossed for you, Joy!

    Ms. Paquette finally passed on my most recent novel, but that was spurred because I had an offer of representation from another agent. She had many kind things to say, and seems (not just because of that) as though she'd be great to work with.

    Good luck to everyone in the querying queue for her!

    Ms. Paquette starred my PitMad pitch on December 4 last year and requested a query and 10 pages. Needless to say, I was pretty happy, since she was on my to-query list but only takes them via referral. I haven't heard anything since, which is why I'm scouring this thread, trying to get a handle on response times.

    Sounds like she takes her time. Of course, less than a month has elapsed, but I wondered if she might get through ten pages more quickly.

    She announced it on Twitter today, so I guess I can share now. I am delighted to say that I am now represented by Joan. Everything I've heard about her is amazing and all of my interactions with her have been terrific. I am thrilled to be part of this wonderful agency!

    EndlesssDestiny, don't think much has changed with this stellar kid lit Agency over the years. They still only accept queries from referrals (existing clients or publishers) and from attendees at conferences such as SCBWI, where they have been on the faculty (and sometimes they request via twitter pitches)
