Not gonna lie. This one hurt. But onward and upward! Also, I appreciate how quick she was.


I'm such a big fan of Danielle, so I'm crossing my fingers on this one. She's always been so kind in our interactions. Anyone would be lucky to sign with her!

Shopcraze1, she's accepted two of my revisions on the same MS. I described in detail what changed the second time, since after the first she didn't invite me to submit again and I wanted to leave her a soft opening to say no thanks without guilt, but she said she'd take another look.

If you haven't gotten an R&R, requery again but note that significant changes have been made. If they're significant enough, it should reflect in your query.

Would anyone know if Danielle accepts resubmissions after there have been significant revisions? Thanks
