Not going to be able to read/update until after the new year, but book is "still very much of interest" (so same message swatithegeek). Really appreciated she did this and was kind enough to give an update.

Message from agent: 12/15/21
She wanted to send me an update and say she won't be able to get back to me on my full until the new year, but my book is "still very much of interest" to her.

Did anyone else who has a full out with Samantha get a similar message?
