**I met Courtney in person and she was the kindest person ever. She was excited about my story and had these little pride flags set up on her table so you knew she was LGBT friendly (which is great because I was pitching a f/f book!)**

Are you all pasting 50 pages or attaching? 50 pages is an awful lot to paste into an email... (I've had emails fail to send when they get too long, that's why I'm worried)
