Never got a response, which shocked me as my plot themes have repeatedly been on her #mswl lists.
Re-queried 1/19/18 with a short note indicating perhaps she didn't receive my first query? Two hours later...
1/19/18 FULL REQUEST (!!) & a note saying she never received my first query and was so glad I re-queried.
3/9/18 Notified Ms. Machinist that another agent had requested an exclusive read, and I declined this request as I want to give Machinist first shot. She replied literally like 60 seconds later, thanking me for the professionalism and letting me know my MS is toward top of her read pile as she was "seduced by the description of it." So, hoping for her response in next few weeks.
5/17 ER on full. Didn’t fall in love with it; excited by premise, but didn’t connect with the voice. Seemed like a standard reply on full rejections, but I could be wrong. Bummer.
