Congrats rmparry!

Email query: 05/18/2022
Full request : 06/08/2022
Revise and Resubmit : 08/05/2022

Megan has been incredibly kind, thoughtful, and polite in our email exchanges.
I'm trying not to get to hyped but I will work on a Revise and Resubmit and definitely submit back to her. She seems absolutely lovely and I love her current list of authors she represents.

Adult romcom, 88K words

EQ: 10th January, 2022
Full request: 24th March, 2022
Offer of rep: 24th June, 2022

I queried Megan at the start of 2022 but hadn't heard back for a while. Between then and March, I'd received some feedback on full rejections from other agents + an R&R. I applied the feedback, then sent Megan a nudge email explaining the situation. She got back to me a few days later to request the new MS, and she reached out again on June 19th to arrange an in person meeting (as we're both London-based) for the 25th, where she offered me rep!

(Would recommend following her on twitter because she's really active there and gives helpful insight into how busy she is. This was partly why I hadn't given up with her - I could see she's had a really busy 6 months or so)

Personal note: I don't know about you but I hate lol when they put "Please bear in mind that this is the opinion of one agency alone and that others may feel differently." I get it. You don't have to remind me that people are individuals and have their own tastes. Positive note; the response time was pretty good. If she didn't email me within 6 days, I would have checked to see if she received my email. Well, I didn't have to lol. Thank you for emailing me. I guess that's all I can ask for.

A positive thing to hear: The one who falls and gets up is so much stronger than the one who never fell. -unknown author

Good luck all.
