Does anyone know anything about her or has anyone here had any contact with her? Thanks!

Welcome to AW!

I got a quick (8 day) request for the full off the query, synopsis, bio, and 50pp she asks for initially. I got back in touch 6 weeks later when I received an offer of rep and she confirmed she wanted to read.

She didn't end up responding before the deadline, but I was cool with that (it was just today). With fast reads, things come up. I found her to be quick and kind and not at all stingy with a compliment. I was happy not to tell her I was going another way, quite frankly. I hate that part.

I queried Ms. Linnan on May 21 and haven't received a response. I haven't heard back from several agents I queried around that time who seem to be responders, so I'm a little worried maybe my gmail decided to hate me that month. I'm wondering if I should send it again, or if that is super bad etiquette.

According to her entry on Publisher's marketplace... "Please be patient as I consider your work - my response time varies, but I try to attend to queries within a month of submission"

I've give it another few weeks then I'd be tempted to send a polite query.
