05/20/22 - Form query after twitter pitch like
06/09/22 - Nudged asking if she'd like to read my revised opening
06/20/22 - Personalized pass (I appreciate the feedback she offered, but she didn't ask for the revised opening. I just checked again and realized I did not explain myself properly in nudge, i.e. it came across as if the revision was minor. Also, she mentions I can query her again if I do a revision. So guess what I'm off to do!!!)

Thank you for sending me the manuscript for XXXXX Unfortunately, this one isn't as strong of a fit for me as I hoped in order to champion the piece. I'm sorry to have to share such disappointing news. The publishing industry is so subjective, so what may not be working for me could be just the thing another agent is looking for.

Remember, this pass is only a pass on this piece of work and not on you as an author. I would be delighted to be considered for future projects.

I'm rooting for you!
