7-9-2020: Full Request upgrade! EEK! fingers crossed!
8-702020: A very kind rejection with offer to query her again. She's very sweet even in her rejections. Will definitely keep her on my list for a possible future project.

She replied with a super kind form letter, including resources to where to find some good agents for my book. Definitely might query her for later books, but for now, I'm left with her rejection.

Personalized Rejection - great advice included within on representation and intriguing plot. Notes on it being dialogue heavy opening.

@jwparente13 - you should be able to send a message using query manager. Though, I'd wait a little bit longer before nudging. Chances are she's taking some thoughts with yours. I'm pretty sure I've been on some "maybe" piles and it's gone both ways several times.

Any one here have a suggestion on a polite way to contact Hannah on the status of a submitted FQ. About a week ago she tweeted her June stats, which my submission falls in, with 21 "not reviewed." On her QT timeline mine looks skipped over while July queries are showing rejects or requests. Thanks for any insight!
