Is she still at this agency? I don't see her on the agency website.

9/7/21 EQ
9/15/21 PR (she asked for 3 more chapters, while in the midst of reading my first 10 pages--according to her email)
10/2/21 R&R on a partial: she gave me great feedback and I'm so happy to work on her notes and send it again to her.
10/12/21 submitted my revised partial. Fingers crossed, this agency definitely reps this kind of book!
11/10/21 Another partial request! She likes what she sees but she wants to see a scene that depicts the heart of the story (after she requested an R&R showing higher stakes re: the inciting incident.)
11/11/21 submitted a second partial, different chapter from later in the book
2/15 haven't heard back yet, after a gentle nudge. Really hoping she responds at some point, after so much back and forth. I thought I had momentum there for awhile.
5/12/22 Well, after all of those back and forth interactions, she ghosted me. Which makes that the most unprofessional experience I've had thus far. I understand ghosting happens, but she wrote several emails to me, so I know she could have sent a simple rejection. Not cool.

04/04/2022 - Hmmm, relatively quick (7 days), but curious, response. She suggested changing the first line of my YA story, and that was pretty much it. I suppose I will take it as a no. It was perhaps the most mysterious no I ever got, but very polite. : )

She's there, JimNaremore. But it is a bit buried and hard to find.

Unless I'm not seeing it, Katherine no longer shows up on the website in the "submissions" or "about us" pages?

The web site seems to be down on all platforms. Wonder what's going on?

I'm preparing to send a query, but Katharine is no longer listed on the agency's website (she's still in the group picture.) Does anyone know what happened? I met her at a conference and really liked her.
