Hi everybody! I'm suddenly so excited that I just can't stand it... I got a full request for my YA urban fantasy back in February, and I still haven't heard a peep from that agent yet. Since then, I've received twelve standard rejections in a row, so my spirits have definitely been slipping.

Just a few minutes ago, I checked my email, saw a reply from an agent I queried in March, and immediately assumed it was yet another standard rejection. However, it actually turned out to be a FULL REQUEST!!! Woohoooo, I was so shocked that I actually made a friend read it over my shoulder to confirm that she said she DID want to see the manuscript, not that she DIDN'T want to see it.

Just sent it.... Oh thank goodness, I NEEDED this today... http://querytracker.net/forum/Smileys/default/happy.gif

Full requests are always nice -- got one the other day that I had to turn down, having already gotten rep. Heh, I've been waiting for one of those... :D

CGs on number two and good luck! Waiting since February? That's not long yet -- I'd give it four months minimum before you worry enough to nudge.

Oh man... Can't even imagine THAT day ever happening... Keeping those fingers crossed, and THANK YOU, everyone!! :)

So glad to hear you say that. I'm far too impatient to be trusted to make appropriate decisions during this process... At least four months it is... ;)

LisaAnn, you're doing great. Your request rate was fine - you just needed to send a few more queries. :)

Thank you so much, kellion92! Trying not to jinx myself by getting too excited, but things are definitely beginning to look a little bit brighter... :)
