3-5-21 - Elana is a wonderful agent who provided me with a substantial amount of feedback I’ll use. Highly recommended. Her clients are quite lucky to have her.

FR: 6-11-20 - requested full after chatting about industry
1-18-21 - since a great amount of time has passed it ended up being a CNR

2-15-21 - Elana was kind enough to get back to me, was asked to resend manuscript
