    Gah! The Call has happened! Offer made, now it's time to take all the advice and do due diligence with outstanding full requests. I'm going to run circles in my backyard now screaming "Whoopwhoopwhoopwhoop" repeatedly. Thanks for all the input, guys!

    Congrats, Shoeless!

    I will be joining Filigree with a full request from Amanda Rutter I queried on the 4th, so a pretty fast turnaround.

    Cool news, Shoeless and Sage! Even if nothing comes of it for me, getting this far has been fun (and much needed!) validation.

    I've been following this thread simply because it's the only agency in the Twin Cities. Suddenly there's all kinds of good news Congrats!

    Just as a data point, I got my offer for representation just a week after Amanda requested my full. (That was January of last year, so I don't know if her response times have changed in any way.)

    That's great to hear! I queried 26 agents this round. 4 have sent rejections, form or slightly personalized. There are two other partial requests out, too. Any one of these amazing folks would be a joy to work with, or I wouldn't have queried them. That said, an agent who responds more quickly gets more weight in the process than one who holds my full or partial for ten months. Which has happened before. I don't worry about query responses, since I have a cut-off date of five months on queries.

    And I'm still doing parallel planning for self-pub, just in case.

    I hope Amanda's timeline is slightly different right now. ;-) She's had my full since 6/19.

    I'm a client and she's had the full of one ms. since early June. I pinged her today. So maybe I'll hear from her this week.

    I suspect Amanda's replies to full requests and such won't be as quick as they were last year, what with all the excellent hard work she's been doing on editing manuscripts and sending out submission packs *minecoughcough*

    True. When I signed with her last year in January, she had only two other clients. She's signed several more over the past year. *waves to Cameron*

    Yeah, I'm not stressing over the timeline right now at all. I'm still pretty early in my querying process. Good luck on submission (and Shoeless with your offer and Filigree with your full).

    FYI, to anyone waiting for a reply from Amanda. Amanda sent out a mass email to her clients on July 17th, apologizing for dropping into a black hole, and promising to contact everyone Real Soon Now.

    In related news, I've since parted ways with the agency. If anyone wants or needs to talk with me about my reasons, just contact me by PM.

    I'm sorry you decided to leave RSL, we enjoyed having you as part of the family. Unfortunately, life happens and Amanda is working twice as hard for her clients to make sure all bases were covered during her brief absence.

    If anyone has questions regarding Red Sofa and our authors, I'm happy to answer as both a client and now an agent with RSL.

    Stacey, can you confirm if Amanda is receiving / answering emails? I sent her a nudge back on August 20 regarding an offer of publication, and that time frame closes at the end of this week.

    ETA: reached Jennie Goloboy, so I'll see what happens next.

    ETA2: reached Amanda.
