@writinglu and @bgtgauthor She made a partial request on the 20th, I'm assuming she's busy reading that and just backed up... fingers crossed for the best for all of us though! Then again, I did have love triangles so maybe I'm just in the "not even a little bit" pile.

@Writinglu looks like she's skipping around a little bit. :) I too am in her maybe pile.

Katie gave me a really thoughtful and personalized rejection that included editing advice! This was my first response from an agent who read a good portion of my manuscript. I appreciated her feedback and will look into incorporating some of her suggestions before I continue my submissions.
