EQ: 12/4
Partial Request: same day
ER: 12/10 (letter below)

Thanks very much for the opportunity to read your work. I’ve given thought to this sample, and I’m sorry to say I won’t ask for the balance of the manuscript: I don’t think I’m the right agent for it. Experience has shown that I need a real passion for a novel in order to advocate effectively for it, and I simply don’t feel that vital connection here. The failure is mine, and I’m sure another agent will have a different response. I wish you success with it.

Thank you for your query. I’m sorry to say that I am too busy with obligations to my current list of books and authors to be able to consider this. I wish you success in finding an agent for your work.

-- not sure if this is a form rejection. She did use my name.

11-11-17 EQ lit fiction
automatic reply that she was on jury duty and might be slow in answering
11-21 Request for 50-page sample
11-21 Wrote back that I had just received an offer, but wasn't sure about it and had put it on hold while other agents finished reading. Sent sample and offered to send ms; she said she should stand aside out of respect for agent who offered, but if I decided not to accept his offer, she would be happy to read.
12-5 I rejected my first offer, and sent whole manuscript
12-7 Offered representation. Letter included a detailed account of why she loved the book. (unlike my first offer, which just said "I loved it.") She spent more than a half hour on the phone with me, talking about the book, explaining her submission policy, etc. I asked for ten days to consider and hear back from other agents who had the full.
